These flights to Durban are so quick I mean 8:10 am board and arrive 50 min later. Short, sweet and to the point. A quick in and out or maybe all in a day’s work.
I was saying yesterday how crazy and even though I love the work I do, being a cargo travel agent is no fair if I can’t ship myself around the world.
It’s not ok that the long-stemmed glassware or crystal embossed vase gets to experience the life of Czech Republic while nursing an Absinthe hangover from the previous night’s party.
Or the Raw Silk Scarves bustling with the who’s who of the fashion world in Milan, roaming the city of love and amore…
My heart yearns to experience these worldly adventures.
So, in the meantime I will keep planning those lazy days on the beach sipping cocktails, or skipping down Abbey Road. A tear of appreciation at Jim Morrison’s tomb stone in Paris.
Wherever or whatever I will keep moving forward and love every second of my short trips to Durban or Cape Town. Then again, I could settle into a Container and Export myself to wherever our resources are needed and takes me; desperate times called for desperate measures… Lol
You never know because that road less travelled never made my book shelf so I will keep on the road ‘till I’m worn out…
There is a song Home by Daughtry and yes it’s an old song but lately in the last 3 months that song has been stuck in my head…
‘Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want’
Well ain’t that the truth and we tend to take that for granted. We pray we ask the universe we do lots of little things and sometimes very subconsciously, and when we receive this gift we so taken back that we either don’t know what to do with it or we abandon it.
So you know received this abundance from God and you literally sit with it in the palm of your hands not knowing what to do with it, fear sets in and either lets the situation take control over you or you just ignore it.
Now if there is one thing I know for sure is that you never get given this wish unless you work for it. For example winning the lotto I mean come on that’s just pure luck and something I completely disagree with. Gambling your hard earnings is for me a very reckless way of trying to gain wealth and this kind of wealth is tangible, its fleeting and just how much happiness does it bring.
Wishing for wealth through employment is giving and receiving and in the end appreciated because you work hard to gain that wealth so thinking before spending and giving back becomes second nature because it humbles you on how you attained it.
Wishing for love… We have to agree sitting home and praying for a life partner is pushing the limits on achieving that goal. We’re not witches we can’t cast a spell and miraculously create a love of life. We have to put ourselves out there and meet people and maybe instead of asking to find love maybe ask to open your heart to work on yourself in allowing you to meet the right person and know whether their intentions with you are what’s right for you. That they will love you back and harmoniously share a life together of happiness.
My point is we can pray and ask for our situations to change or get better or we can just stop and look around and realize that we are where we supposed to be and appreciate what we have because you may just wish for something or someone and in the end it’s something you actually never wanted and now that you have it you have to decide what to do with it.
‘So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old’
Home is within your heart, within your soul and if there is no peace there, then how can you find it anywhere else. So before you ask for anything be sure it’s not what you already have and ask why do you want it.
