Inspirational Quotes: Travel

Inspirational Quote | The Silver PenInspirational quotes are – as you know by now – great Silver Linings in my life. I look to them for encouragement, support and motivation on good days and difficult ones. The past 10 days have been…well, quite difficult so much so, in fact, that I have found myself having a hard time keeping everything together and begging for forgiveness for a few dropped balls and untimely correspondence.

To add to the challenges, I have been on the road literally for the past 10 days with nary a day off.  This isn’t very Silver Pen-ny of me, is it? I know, I know.

As I was staring aimlessly out of – yet another – airplane window, I was reminded of this quote. I realize that I’ve been a (reactive) passenger lately and that I need to be my own pilot. So, I think that what I need to do is put on my wings and fly my plane in a new direction. Sorry for the corny imagery, but I’m nothing if not literal.

Happy Flying!

    Addendum to my post: My husband just informed me that "Straighten Up and Fly Right" is a song from Nat King Cole. He is playing the song for me as I write this; pretty catchy tune and lyrics.

    You have to pause and take notice when your daughter asks you, "what on earth are you doing now?" I loved that from "suddenly seven"; such concern for her mommy.

    I like this quote that asks us whether we want to be passenger or pilot of our lives. I could relate to your imagery of "putting on my wings and flying in a new direction". Similar to the saying, "straighten up and fly right".
