I’m referring to the ash of recent volcanic eruption that has caused disruption in international travel. My recent blog, “Strategies for Emotional Flexibility” and all the Stress Management tips I know & teach havent yet settled my unease re the flights around this trip. We are planning to leave in 2 days: Thursday afternoon, Kennedy-Madrid, with a flight Malaga-London 5/26 and then back to NY June 1. Thanks in advance for the power of collective positive energy. I know that stress is about feeling out of control and that 92% of worry is about circumstances we cannot change. With that said, I could be packing instead of writing this blog now (even tho it’s a great release to blog abt something like this..) and I continue to tap throughout the day with ash settled being my newest tapping phrase! I’ve always had some issues with packing- and am so much better at it now and am evidently procrastinating- another fear issue..am I afraid I wont “have enough” or “just in case” if we’re stranded in Europe- and that scenario can be terrific actually- so I must focus on taking the most important items and nothing else. We still need to deal with the luggage-weight issues and are bringing our daughter a new computer among other things! The Euro is so low now we can buy anything needed for bargain prices~
Traveling can be chaotic- and I have coached many people to successfully overcome fear of flying and packing anxiety. The “ash fear” and related issues can be conquered too. Onward!
Thanks for the collective ear, friends!
