I love this photo! I took this from an airplane as we took off. It is a great photograph to look at in moments when I want to fly away!
I think we all have those moments (yes, similar to the moments when we want to run away!) Yet, somehow, running away and flying away are two different things for me. When I want to run away, it is to escape. When I want to run away there is a fantasy about staying away for a long time. However, when I fly away I see it not as an escape or running away, but as a chance to embark on a new adventure. (Hopefully a pleasant one!)
I love it when I get to fly – the energy of the plane taking off down the runway excites and thrills me. As I take off in a plane I get a great sense of adventure and it warms my spirit.
Today, 96 days ’til 40, I am always thankful when I am given the opportunity to fly away for a while!
