Thank GOODNESS there was a reminder to take a photo on the front of this sign. My husband and I had rushed to the airport in Nashville traffic on the morning of our departure date and I wouldn’t have thought to place this marker in my phone, but the genius designers of BNA planned for just such a time as this.
They must’ve known that our non stop direct flight home from LA would be cancelled, which meant we’d spend all day in various airports connecting to other flights and getting home almost a full day later than planned. They were wise to predict that I’d be tired and irritable and not thinking clearly. At least someone at the top must be married because they understood that it’s easy, by this time, for a man and wife to conduct jumping jacks on each other’s last nerve.
After the last plane finally lands, we gather our bags in the crowded claim area, and start making our way through the packed parking lot on the shuttle. It’s dark. And cold. We’d left sunny 78 degrees on the west coast for bone chilling 28 degrees here in Tennessee. And we’re dressed for midday, when our direct flight was originally scheduled to land.
It takes a while to get the car to warm up and we make our drive home from the airport in silence. Just get me home.
IN ORDER TO GET WHERE YOU’RE GOING, YOU GOTTA KNOW WHERE YOU’RE STARTING OUT.
And you gotta know what feels like “home.”
If you have goals for a relationship or career, you need to take inventory. You need to know what you’re dealing with. (ie; where you are.) And you need to have a good understanding of what you’re good at, where you want to go, what feels natural to you. (ie; home.) If you have no idea what your gifting is, hiring a coach can help. If you need an Alongsider in the process, email me firstname.lastname@example.org – because sometimes, you just gotta hear yourself say it out loud. And I was born to listen.
PS- this delay in travel is why there’s no podcast episode this week. But there will be one SOON! Stay tuned. :-0)
