Life ….. a long haul flight

There are hundreds of philosophical renditions of life and its meanings.Today as I am sat on an aircraft , I can’t help but think of the similarities of a plane journey with life itself.

We all start out in a particular direction, most of us have goals and dreams and ideas for our future and where we want to get to. Much like a destination of a journey. We all carry ‘baggage’, some heavier , some lighter. The rule of traveling light isn’t just true in the case of literal travel.
Once we take off, external conditions determine if it’s going to be smooth sailing or turbulent… sometimes a bit of both. As are the circumstances in our lives , Happy, stressful, trying , joyous…..

During our travel we meet fellow passengers, just like we pass through acquaintances on a day to day basis.
On this journey, we have the pilots and flight crew for our safety, comfort and assistance. Just like we all are surrounded with family , friends and loved ones that always have our back.

Life ….. a long haul flight. We have the choice to sleep though it or LIVE it !!!!
