Day 3211 – Sometimes You Have To Go Through The Storm For The Most Beautiful Places – repost

This time last year, I was enjoying a wonderful vacation with a very dear friend. I wrote this post the first full day there, and I think it’s a good reminder, no matter what you’re going through right now.

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 (click here to read 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.

Day 2844 – Taking My Own Advice – Traveling To Florida

I spend a lot of time talking about travel here. I encourage others to travel. I’m writing a book on how you can take a cross country road trip on any budget (see below for the link – Jennilyn from the future). If you say ANYTHING about travel, I will encourage you to go, even if it takes a few years to save up or if you take a smaller trip.

Today, I am taking my own advice. A great friend of mine is currently living in Florida. I decided to cash in some miles and go see her for a few days. I will put together a post after the trip to let you know how much I spent. But here’s my current total.

Round trip plane ticket from Baltimore to Tampa – $11.20.
Snacks purchased before trip – ~ $10-15.
Coffee at airport, thanks to my Dunkin app – $1.49
Accommodations – $0.00.
Running total – $27.69

I am still in shock that I haven’t taken a trip yet, just for fun. I can’t wait to visit my friend and explore Florida. I’m so thankful for work that allows me to work anywhere, and is flexible.

So friends, what trips are you putting off? What advice are you giving to other people but not taking yourself?
