Leavin’ on a Jet Plane

I flew for the first time in over a month today and I realized something; there is no better high than knowing you are getting on this gigantic thing with wings to go somewhere different. 

You are escaping your normal, everyday routine to go someplace else. 

I get this anxious, excited, nervous feeling every time I step foot on an airplane. It’s just the thought of this thing bringing me thousands of feet in the air, above the clouds, above the world.

There is no other excitement that trumps this feeling, at least not yet. Maybe as my life goes on I will discover that this feeling cannot be replicated or replaced. 

Do you ever feel this way? 

P.S. Here is a photo I took while waiting for my plane to take off and head to Washington DC. I just felt a sense of peace and understanding.

    1. Hi Denisha! Thanks so much for reading and commenting! ❤️ Flying can be so many emotions and I think its important to acknowledge those feelings vs just bottling them in. Flying can be like riding a bike for the first time or seeing your crush. You get this excitement while also be scared and nervous at the same time. I am not doing any studies on this but just wanted to see how people felt about flying but if you have any recommendations on how to follow up on this post, let me know!


  2. Howdy I am so happy I discovered your web site, I actually found a person by problem, while My partner and i was searching on Bing for something more important, Anyways We are here now and would just like to give you thanks for a new marvelous post along with a all rounded interesting weblog (I also adore the theme/design), I lack time to go through it all currently but We’ve book-marked it plus included your RSS rss feeds, so when i have time I will be back to learn much more, Please do keep up the great job.


  3. I am still laughing over “It’s been years since I maced someone on a plane.” That was kind of awesome.The TSA thing kills me; it’s not like they have signs telling you about the rules in the line, or a whole website devoted to what you can and cannot bring on board. There is no mystery about taking off your shoes or liquids in your bag or that Bowie knife you absolutely must carry on for your flight to Kansas City.
