Airport (2)

Being Stuck in a Peaceful State

Earlier this week I was telling you about my flight out to Michigan a few weeks ago.

Well, on the way back, I got a text on my way to the airport telling me that my flight had been delayed two hours.

I reframed the situation quickly and decided I would get some reading in, my daily meditation and some planning for the following week.

The flight wound up getting delayed a few more times, so I just kept re-framing it.  It wasn’t bad, it was a good thing because of the gap in my schedule it opened up.

The delays meant that I didn’t get home and to sleep until 1 AM, only to be up again at 5 AM to Coach 4 sessions, which again, I reframed before going to bed.

I could have thought about being tired and being bitter about my delay, but instead I thought of how cool it was that I still get to go after my passion and have these opportunities to Coach clients every single day.

Reframe, it’s the most important skill you’ll ever learn.

P.S-After the deadlift championships on Dec. 15th, we are having our annual Holiday Party at Newell Strength with the reindeer present.  This party is known as Festivus, because, well, it’s a festivus for the rest of us!  It’s PotLuck and BYOB.  Feel free to bring friends!

And Then This Happened…

We were all set to fly back from our trip to Kentucky.  A 9AM flight meant we were going to be home by lunchtime.

We had to wake the boys up early, out of their slumber since we wanted to get to the airport by about 7.

This meant that they would be raring to go on the plane.  Brax is a good flier but Colt, he is at the age where he won’t sit still and wants to explore everything.

As were waiting to taxi out to the runway, the pilot gets on the speaker and says there is a 2 hour delay since Newark was having some heavy storms.  Devon and I looked at eachother and she said, ‘What does that mean?’  I said it meant we would be sitting here on the plane, trapped for the next two hours and then we would have an hour and a half flight.

Amazingly, they did what they never do, at least in my experience, and they let us off the plane to hang out in the airport.

The boys spent the majority of the time riding and playing on the moving walkway, Tank running on it like a treadmill.  People were getting such a kick out of them.  I couldn’t believe how fast the time went when were called to re-board the plane.

We made the most of it and Tank wound up napping on my lap for the entire flight.

That’s turning lemons into lemonade.

Re-framing is the most powerful skill you’ll ever come across.
