Are you at a point in your life where you’re constantly frazzled, burning the candle at both ends and can barely fire two synapses together because you are on emotional overload? You’re being pulled from all sides….the boss has you on an impossible deadline and so far the only thing that you’ve managed to produce is a case of the heebie jeebies (but who can afford to be out of work in this economy?).
Everybody has a story. Each story is a mix of varying parts of happiness, sadness, hope and regret. It’s rare to find anyone who is completely happy with their lot in life, but the smart ones know that complaining never helps nor does it make anything better. If they are dissatisfied with the path they’re on, they’ll strive to make changes that will take them on a different route.
Where I am likely to vacation (i.e., run for my dear, sweet life) when the Zombie Apocalypse finally hits….
I think there’s a great possibility that people could wake up one day with a thirst for someone else’s flesh and brain matter. Before you laugh, have you seen the way our own (American) Congress has been acting up lately? Scary, huh? Or………. I could be watching too many episodes of The Walking Dead. So, there’s that.
There are certain unpleasant truths in life. Racism is one of them because it refuses to die a natural death and can and will live on forever into eternity if left unchecked. Many would have us believe that it’s unfashionable or gauche to declare this fact.
What a familiar refrain, it’s romantic and decisive; but what if it didn’t matter? What if some things are simply out of your reach no matter how much you desire it? I’m the biggest proponent of going out into the world to fight for what you want, but there are times when fighting, no matter how valiant, is useless.
Something interesting happened within the confines of a majority black travel forum that I’m a member of. One of the members shared how her boss’ countenance changed when he overheard where she would be going on vacation. She regretted that he had heard the exchange almost immediately.
I have a friend who really wants to travel internationally, but she can’t bring herself to do it. She told me that she is afraid to travel across a body of water and the long plane trip won’t be a picnic either. I can sympathize that both issues can be disconcerting, but it should not be a deal breaker.
A few years ago, I wrote this on the day that several soldiers were killed during a mission in Iraq. I started to think about the families that they left behind who would never have another chance to say, “I love you”. They would never have another opportunity to say the untold number of things that they wished they could have shared
I think today’s word is quite apropos given that this challenge ends in a mere three days. It is a chance for me to look back and say that even though I got sidetracked or behind at times, I can see myself dashing across that finish line. I can look back on how I allowed myself to use this wonderful medium to show my readers the human, creative side of Renee King….travel blogger.
