What is it about airports?

Why do even the most socially savvy people go into their hole from the moment they either step foot on the parking shuttle or walk into the terminal?  

I have observed this shift in behavior countless times over the years and I’m still left curious. Is there some unspoken cultural norm that we keep to ourselves and throw the guards up during travel?  When some brave soul opens-up to say something, why does that seem off putting or even intrusive? Every once in a while, like all cultures, someone breaks the norm and finds a suitable ally to join them in actual dialogue. (Shocking…) And, when this happens, have you noticed that others around them shift? 

Caution: if/when attempting this cultural change (conversation), proceed slowly and softly…we wouldn’t want an implosion. Recall that feeling you get when two strangers chat on an airplane and they’re loud enough to be heard, not acceptable behavior is it?!  🙂 

We are a fascinating species…it’s so interesting how we navigate different parts of our world to typically find assimilation and optimally acceptance. 

How do you find the path you’re navigating?  Have you stopped and wondered about your shifts and assimilations as you maneuver different cultures? Most importantly, are these shifts serving you well?  And, why the hell are the peanuts treated like gold during flight and can’t get a second glimpse on the ground? 🙂

I am on a lifelong journey to love myself and help others go love themselves. During our adventure together we can each become the owner of our unique YOUniverse! I will share what I have learned from a rough beginning, an onslaught of betrayals, a heap of making bad decisions, some great decisions, becoming a teenage mother & wife, joining the Air Force to support my family, and the world of transformation that followed...
Learning opportunities are at every corner want to join me on this journey?
