i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

One of my favorite things to do when I’m flying on a plane is to get some sleep! When stuck on a flight for several hours, I consider it to be a great time for me to decompress, relax and catch up on some much needed rest. I have a special pillow and blanket, eye mask and headphones that help me get as comfy and cozy as possible on the plane. And if getting some sleep is my number one concern, I have learned to focus on just that, because there are other things going on while I’m sleeping.

This made me think about the fact that when I choose to focus on one thing, it actually helps me to accomplish the very thing I want to get done. So if I’m ever going to take “flight” in my life and ascend to the places I’m meant to really go, I need to learn FOCUS at another level; otherwise I will stay off track trying to do two completely different things at the same time, and end up not accomplishing anything!!! With it almost being a brand new month in 2019, I am sure I’m not the only one who already needs to refocus on what’s priority on this flight. I am honest enough to say that I need to be more clear about what’s number one in my life and hone in on it. I need to give it my undivided attention and focus because other things will always be going on while I’m doing what I set out to do. Even on any normal flight if you go to sleep, when you wake up you’ll find out that the flight crew handed out refreshments while you were sleeping.

Now you can either get mad about what people got while you were sleep, or you can celebrate the fact that you accomplished the goal you had in mind when you got on board. See, there are far too many people today who are upset and envious about what others got while they were sleeping. Envy and comparison are toxic distractions on the flight of life! Not only that, if you think like this you’re only demonstrating to yourself and everyone around you that you’re a straight up hater. Why be upset about other people getting what they stayed up for while you were sleeping? Basically, what I’m trying to say is, if you are ever going to learn to enjoy this flight you’re on called life; you have got to focus on the fact that you can’t eat and sleep at the same time. So pick a target and go at it, and refuse to be upset about what’s being handed out to other people while you’re sleeping.
