Day 2846 – Sometimes You Have To Go Through The Storm For The Most Beautiful Places

On my flight from Baltimore to Tampa, we hit some really bad turbulence. The drink orders had just been taken, and the turbulence started. Even the flight attendants had to sit down. We did get drinks eventually, but I would say the turbulence lasted 80% of the 2 hour 20 minutes, flight. Even the landing was a little rough.

I spent most of the flight reading an amazing book (check back tomorrow to hear what it is and how it is changing my life). As we were making our final decent, I realized what I could learn from such a crazy flight. I knew that I was going to an amazingly beautiful place. Having explored a few of the beaches, and having spent time outside on the back patio of friend’s place, I understand why so many folks move here. Even though I didn’t know how great it was before my feet hit the ground, I had an idea of how good it would be. It wasn’t easy getting here. But isn’t that true of the journey to the great places in our lives? Your broken heart leads to your deepest love. Your failed business prepares you for an even better business. Your rough plane right leads to one of the most beautiful places you’ve ever seen.

If you’re stuck on a plane ride that is making you want to throw up, remember that the destination could be more amazing than you’ve dreamed.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
