Everyone Has a Story

They say it's not what happens to you in life, but it's how you react to it. I'm not sure who 'they' are, or if I just made that up, but it's true. I was lucky enough this past week to spend a couple of days in NYC for social media week to learn more about how I can utilize social media technology and tools for the organization that I work for...

Friday night I left NYC, headed to Charlotte then headed back to Arkansas. It's always sad to leave NYC, but it's always nice to be home as well. As we landed in Charlotte we realized that our flight had been delayed. Slight relief to me because that meant I could eat dinner... this girl likes to eat dinner.

After I ate I found out that the flight had been delayed again. Again, no problem. A couple of phones calls to catch up, a little reading, even some work and I feel much more productive. Then we had another delay ... until 11:29 p.m. Anytime your flight is delayed that late you might as well call a taxi and get a ride because you're not leaving that airport going anywhere.

I asked if I had to pray when I got there... 

I hate it when I'm right. Our flight was canceled, we all had to get rescheduled, and put up in a hotel. During the waiting, the standing, the hanging around for answers, I realized that everyone has a story. I made new friends at the airport, standing in line getting a new ticket, and even waiting on the hotel shuttle to come pick us up. Maybe sometimes we're suppose to wait for things in life. After all, who doesn't like new friends?

Plus, if a canceled flight is the worst thing that happens to me, then I think I'll be just fine.

Time to fly!
