The reflection question Monday was – what do you appreciate about what’s working?
Wednesday I flew from New York to Tuscon to attend a business retreat for my mastermind group. I made it to the airport in record time, no wait in security, and my connecting flight a breeze. I was cognizant of my reflection question and so appreciative of how easy it all felt.
Well, as I write this there is a blizzard underway in the Northeast. My flight home is scheduled for Sunday. I am wondering if I will make it home – at all or without delays. I flew out on United and assumed my flight back was with United as well. I called the airline to see if my flight cancelled yet. I held on the phone for 35 minutes to talk to an agent – only to discover I did not read my ticket closely – it was with American! So I called American and got an agent in 4 minutes.
While the snow pours down at 1 inch an hour, they said they can’t say yet if it will be cancelled. I have to go with the flow. At least for tomorrow I can enjoy the sunshine and temperate weather in Tuscon.
Regardless of how this travel unfolds, I am committed to managing my stress – holding the space for adventure versus hassle. Perhaps we are making up for a record breaking seventy degrees on Christmas.
