Commuting and loneliness

As I am commuting to work and I’m having great coffee, free WiFi and free TV I am feeling great. I do have to make a connection to get to my preferred airport but I get to see a friend in between my flights.

This does not sound bad. It is not always like this. I am usually very positive about commuting because that is just what I have to do for now. There is no point of complaining and being bitter. If you find a hobby or take a nap on these flights, they become useful. Also I just have the thought of getting my transfer soon in the back of my mind.

The worst part about commuting is that right now I am going through a time where I start feeling the loneliness come in. On my layovers it’s not that bad. I usually feel it kick in if I am in my crash pad and my friends aren’t there. Also, if I’m at home by myself.

There are multiple reasons why I feel lonely. It’s the job itself and reaching almost a year mark of being single after ending a 5 year relationship. I try to make this journey about myself and really trying to explore what I enjoy to do in my free time, what I want in life and what kind of people I enjoy spending time with. Somehow life still hits me with those feelings of loneliness and it is a little difficult to push those away at times.

Well I am happy that this commute won’t involve a little cry session in the lavatory (long story, rough day, it was short and to the point) due to a random panick attack. I might have a random panick attach once I open my bag and notice I forgot to pack my charger for my work phone, but I will figure it out. Thats is what we have to do as flight attendants I guess. We have to figure out how to solve random problems that come from living in a suitcase.

Now I am going of on a tangent so I will end this. It felt good to write in here again. Letting this feeling out and sharing it openly helps me feel not so alone.

Dreaming on

Finally, after tears, struggles, realizations, mental preperation and a lot of self exploring, I am fulfilling my dream. In a few days I will be graduating my Inflight training. The road to becoming a flight attendant wasn’t easy. I still have a couple days left, out of these five weeks, but it feels like forever. The last few days are dragging. We have our uniforms, we are official employees of the airline and we took our graduation pictures, but we still did not get our wings.
It’s so close, yet so far.
The last four weeks went by so quickly. I can’t believe that at the beginning of next month we will be on line.

Also, I got my acceptance into my online Bachelor’s program for Aviation Administration and I could not be more happy.
I will be flying the skies as I am learning more about how this whole industry works.

This will be an incredible journey for me. I will be learning about what I truly enjoy and want to have my future in, but also, that future starts now. I am in this industry, I am already doing what I enjoy, and I will just continue to grow and explore different sides of it.

IĀ  needed to keep my faith close to me through this journey. Without that and my family and friends I would not have been able to come on this road.

To finish off I just want to really point out that following your heart in these kind of matters is very crucial to our happiness.
