Just recently I got stranded in Detroit due to a cancel US Air flight. Forcing me to find a local hotel to stay at until my return to the airport at 4:00 AM.
As I started the process of canceling appointments and reshuffling my schedule, my inner child started to surface thinking how unfair this all was.
It was not until I was in the air looking out the window at the morning sunrise reflecting off the storm clouds that it hit me; my troubles are nothing compare to what was going on around me.
Sure I could stay in that self-pity mode or enjoy the moment viewing the sunrise with a recently acquired new friend sitting next to me.
Life is too short and we are not that important in the scheme of things to get so worked up over small changes to our set plans.
By mid morning, I had made a few new friends. Enjoyed a 30,000 flight to clear my head, and view the start of an amazing day while others still slept.
So was getting hit with a cancel flight really that bad? Yeah it was not planned, but sometimes our biggest adventures start with an unplanned challenge.
With that thought, I wish you find your next adventure when your plans get side tracked.
Go out and make it a great day!
