Today I am thankful for… FLIGHT!
It’s pretty much a no brainer the reasoning for my thanks; the very opportunity to be transported to a new destination by way of air; its astounding really isn’t it! And that so many of us do it AND it becomes a normal part of life this traveling around in a big metal carrier business! I love the notion of being in a new city, a new destination and sometimes a new home within a couple of hours! For us in Oz to get anywhere outside our great sunburnt land needs some extra hours added to the schedule but somehow we don’t seem to mind!
Traveling is in our blood! And for me it’s been in my blood for a very long time! I’m extremely familiar with airports and waiting and the hours spent going from A to B and even though we vow that we hate the plane trips there is always a part of us that is super excited to get on board and equally excited to get off, especially after the food hahaha! I love flying! I love it because it means a new adventure! A new experience! A new story! But unfortunately my big adventures are behind me for now as I live to a treatment schedule; no more traveling for months, no more living abroad adventures like I always keep planning in my dreams… but for me I can still have flight, I can still have new adventures while I’m well enough, they just have to be shorter and I can still expand my mind with the memories that only travelling can bring! Like my little trip to Melbourne!
For me flight is the journey to a ‘new’ and the coming ‘home’. It’s the familiarity of youth and adventure! It’s the independence you seek and the escape you desire! It’s the ‘step’ in your life and the journey you undertake! It may be a modern day machine… but it’s purpose in each of our lives is far more!
What are you thankful for today Nakeds?
