When you see people running through the airport, it is usually never a good thing. It always seems to be those people that aren’t used to running and are out of breath and in a panic about missing their flight. And if you are one that doesn’t fly or frequent airports, then I bet you can surely imagine and picture this. I witnessed this more than once at the airport on my recent trip to Florida and it got me thinking….Do we always have to catch that connecting flight? Why are we always in such a hurry? How much would our life be disrupted if we had to unexpectedly change our plans?... Maybe we aren’t always meant to catch that flight? And this doesn’t just happen at airports either. We miss so much when we are focused on what is exactly in front of us. Many of us live our lives wearing those constant blinders that give us “tunnel vision”. As a Police Officer, I was trained to always be scanning and watching. I would encourage all of you to slow down, to breath, to observe, to learn. We need to appreciate the signs both seen and unseen that are given to us each and every day. How many of us can see but are actually blind to not only everything that is immediately around us, but to the external vast universe. The next time you find yourself running from point A to point B, I ask you to stop, think, and consider the possibilities. It might be exhilarating to walk, to miss that flight and see where you end up at? It might just be the best thing that ever happened to you!
