Today is an exciting day! If all goes as planned, I’ll meet Richard Simmons this evening! And I can’t think of many things that I’ve looked forward to more in life than that. But in order to get there, I have to board an airplane, and that scares me in a way that it hasn’t in months.
I’ve been mentally preparing for this for the last few days – reminding myself that the horrible things that happened with Southwest only happened once though I fly fairly often. I’ve tried to convince myself that the odds are in my favor and that I’ll be okay. This is their opportunity to do it right, and I expect them to do just that.
Kent is flying in this morning then joining me on the flight to Los Angeles. I’m glad he’ll be there for obvious reasons, but I’m relieved that he’ll be around to distract me from my anxiety.
Here’s an interesting fact about my friend and travel companion – he’s 6 ft 5 in tall. And while he’s height weight proportional, he finds it difficult to get comfortable on a plane unless he’s sitting in an exit row because he’s a big guy. Interesting, right? I think so…
Anyway, we’re both so excited to workout with Richard and my friends who will soon be Kent’s friends too! And we have a lot to look forward to in the coming days so I’m doing my best to focus on that now instead of my fears.
Regardless of what happens on the flight this afternoon, today is going to be terrific. I’m so thankful for this silver lining. And facing this challenge today will be easier because I know that so many of you will be here to support me – no matter what. Thank you in advance.
Needless to say, I will post pictures ASAP! =)
