Blogworld Part I

Leg one of my trip from Chicago to Vegas is over.  I actually wrote this on the plane.  I was terrified to fly by myself.  I have never gone anywhere by myself.  I made my way through Midway Airport without any problems.  There was a McDonalds open at the airport.  I was able to sleep on the plane.    I have a new found confidence about this trip now.  Before, I felt like I did in high school; nobody’s going to like me or talk to me.  Its amazing that 12 years later those feelings can still creep up.  The fact that I have done so well so far just shows that I am a capable person (which I think got lost or went into hiding after I had my kids).  I have decided that I will have fun.  I will talk to people.  Bill kept telling me it was all about mindset, and I think he was right (just don’t tell him that – lol).

  1. That's awesome, Lisa! I can completely relate to what you're saying, too. Isn't it cool when you rediscover things about yourself, or discover new things for the first time? 🙂 I know you're going to have a great time!

  2. "I felt like I did in high school; nobody’s going to like me or talk to me"

    Ah, I felt the same way in high school, and still do actually. I hope I'll be able to get over it soon 🙂

    And I hope you do have fun!

  3. I had done very little traveling in my life (and never alone) when I found myslef in a job that had me jetting all over the place, in my forties, lol! I can totally relate. I'm glad tor know that the Vegas expeience reminded you that you can do anything you set your mind to.
