The Marvel of It

With a heavy travel schedule it’s been interesting to me how many things come up and how many things seem to fade away – there are ample choices in life and additional ones while traveling.


  • To be happy regardless of delays
  • To be open when others seem closed
  • To be accommodating when it’s not your schedule
  • To be grateful for common courtesies


When I have the opportunity to travel – and it is an opportunity – my mindset is one of wonder – after all, plane travel allows me and others to recline in a seat while flying through the air, which is a miracle for certain.


I can live in this wonder – where I see everyone and everything as a marvel – like moving walkways and moving stairs – wow – or I can take it as ordinary, and miss the experience.


I can be irritated that the plane is delayed, or I can look around and notice the languages and accents, the expressions and relationships.


Like almost everything in life – it’s a choice, my choice in how to think, feel, experience and accept.


I’m off again in the morning very early and I can be put out I have to arise before 4 am or I can be excited – who will I meet, what will I see, what will I smell, touch and feel?


Remember you create your day by the way you think. Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
