Things Seen in the Airport

I am a frequent traveler for work. The parent of one of my gymnasts jokes that I fly more than her husband WHO IS A PILOT!

I am a bit of a freak when it comes to arriving early. Whether I am arriving early to the airport or arriving early to a convention center or gym. I do not like to be rushed I would rather have some extra time to get my bearings, plan, etc. When I arrive early at the airport I tend to just read or write. When my brain needs a break I play a few mental games as I people watch.

Where are they going or coming from? : Based upon what they are wearing or carrying. For example- sun burned family, kids hair braided, dragging through the airport- Just came from Caribbean Vacation.

What is their job? : Based on what they are wearing or carrying- What is their job

Rank most OVERDRESSED travelers  in a certain amount of time.

I really try to be nice to airport and airline employees. They are just doing their job. What I get annoyed with is other travelers who seemingly have NO IDEA how to travel or act at an airport. I will save that rant for another day.

Here are some photos from airports.


October 19. International Evaluate Your Life Day


Evaluate Your Life Day is a bit scary. It sounds just a little bit too serious for my liking. And, what if I evaluate my life, and find out that I don’t like it????????

Evaluate Your Life Day gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect upon our life, where it’s been, and where its going. C’mon, be honest with yourself. Are things going well? What is bothering you? What do you need, or want, to change? How’s your Job? Why are you stressed? How is your relationship with friends and family?

With a self evaluation, you can then make big changes to improve the quality of your life, as necessary. Or, if things are going well, just tinker with small adjustments.

I have to believe that  Evaluate Your Life Day is the beginning of a happier and healthier you!
