Gatwick airport

27 Mar

I’m sitting in a bar at Gatwick airport drinking an Aperol Spritz, waiting for a flight to Glasgow.

In just over five weeks time I will be back here, headed for Florida.

This is great news.

As is my Aperol.

    You lead such an active and fascinating life of travel. I know I’ve commented on it before but just… wow. Kudos to you, April. x Things might not have worked out the way you wanted to with regards to your love life but I really think you’re so so lucky to have a lot of what you’ve got going on around you. Cherish it. I wish I was so strong and out there instead of being a frightened little shut-in just trying now at age 30 to get out into the world again…jumping at every little thing that moves..
    P.S. The drink looks so yum and I want one!

      Ahh, thanks buddy. I do enjoy my travels. And I know I’m a lucky cat that I get to travel for work etc. I’m just such a loser – I’d rather be at home having a family and doing all that stuff. I guess the grass is always greener. You are strong. You really are. I can tell it from the way you write and how you think about things. The world is waiting, you just need to jump out there. Honestly, I was the biggest scaredy cat when I was younger, but the more you just push yourself, the easier it gets to do new and different things. And the more you enjoy them, the more that you want to push your comfort zone. Plan a solo trip. I promise, it might be lonely at times, but you’ll get something out of it. x

        Thank you for your kind words and suggestions. As terrified as I am, I have been trying to take small steps at first to get out more and do things alone. It’ll get easier once it warms up here – because here in Ontario Canada we’ve been having the most monstrous of winters, and it’s been impossible to really go out and do anything.
        But I am going to try – that’s all I can do right? Gotta start somewhere. Thanks again…. x

        It is true – that’s all you can do. And also, if you don’t try, it won’t ever happen. I think trying is the scariest bit. I did this leadership course at work where we had to visualise our discomfort zone and then split it in two so there are goals that feel easier but are a little outside of the comfort zone, and then there’s the crazy difficult stuff. You can start small. x
