Travel days and peaceful skies

Horrible beeping. Groggy. Blurry. Warm covers. Cold floor.

Late. Snoring lover. Twinge of annoyance and jealousy.

Rushing. Water. Sigh of...relief? No... Sigh of comfort/contentment. Hot. Steamy.

Typical Monday-AM.

Packing. Driving. Parking. Running. Security. Unload. Scan. Reload. Waiting.

Every other Monday, I fly. For work. Different cities. Different airports. Coherent... Sane. Different... Same.

. . I usually forget to look out the window and see how pretty the world is. I am usually the guy with a hat, sunglasses, and earphones. I am trying to ignore you, your stories, and your child/friend/parent/partner rambling. I have been conditioned to get in, sit down, and get where I am going. Preferably with as little hassle as possible.

As I said, I fly almost every 2 weeks (sometimes more frequently...), and it is way too easy to take the experience for granted. Every one has a story. Every airport has some point of interest. Every local restaurant has some dish that you just gotta try. We just get... distracted. Well, I don't want to be that way anymore. I don't wanna be that guy anymore...

Today, I hope I learn never to take such a view for granted again.

#DailyProverbs July 25

It can be very difficult to find people you can trust. In this day and age when anyone can publish just about anything they want... Well, it can be nearly impossible to hat you can count on someone. It can be hard to have employees, friends, family, and partners that you have absolute confidence in. Confidence to be honest, to not betray you, to take up for you behind your back, and not just in front of you.

Proverbs 25:13 A reliable messenger is refreshing to the one who sends him, like cold water in the heat of harvest time. 14 People who promise things that they never give are like clouds and wind that bring no rain.

It can be incredibly frustrating to have someone in your life that you don't trust. Or feel you cannot trust. Lies, secretive behavior, mis- or non-communication. Not listening. It all boils down to trust and credibility. People that continually promise "to do better" and have to apologize for the same behavior over and over, eventually become untrustworthy and lack credibility.

Be careful out there...
Cheers, y'all!
