Throughout this nomadic life, especially when traveling with children, you have to actively seek out the little things to brighten your spirits when things get hard.
One of those little things for me is my "turn" at the window seat. As a photographer I get to indulge in snapping cloud photos to my heart's content without having to reach over someone.
But as a person it is a small slice of "me time" where I get to contemplate my existence while speeding through the air in a metal tube. It also serves as a moment to decompress.
On the flight from Sydney to Fiji I was so grateful for this window seat view to decompress. Everything that could go wrong trying to get to Fiji did go wrong. Resulting in a loss of time, patience, and a significant sum of money.
Based on the events of the day, I had to make some decisions. Would I let the events of the day ruin our Fiji portion of the trip? Would I spend hours worrying how I would replenish our depleted funds from the unexpected expenses? This window seat moment allowed me reconnect with myself and realized how fortunate I am to even experience this amazing life, even with its challenges and hiccups. @fly_fijiairways
