I am a nervous, anxiety-ridden flyer and although I love to be somewhere else in less time than it takes to watch a movie, I still kind of freak every time. I have tons of tools and just packing is fuelled with decisions, doubts and drama. What’s the weather like? What colors should I wear so that I only need to bring one pair of shoes, make-up and jewelry? What am I going to be doing at any given time? Do I need a sweater, sneakers or SPF? Electronica? Books? Umbrella? You get the crazy in my head. And…. I actually have a list!
Just as long as we are safe, I will be fine. Breathe. Meditate. Write. Reading trash can sometimes pass the time and other times, praying is my only solace. The more I travel, the more paraphernalia I need with me to cover all my bases.
The serenity prayer holds the truth. Bottom line, I am not in charge. Self –centered fear is really the bane of my existence.
Berkeley here we come!
