The Jetta Way Part I
The most incredible things in life stem from the smallest things in life. Faith and small effort yields big results. I thought I would better elaborate on the concept of my life journey. How did I get here today? I am so happy to be here on this wonderful planet that God has given us. Every breath I take is something that I never take for granted. This life is beyond amazing, and this world brings forth so much more than what we can ever think of. I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for my life here on this earth. Just exactly did I get here? How did I shift from 1st to 6th in two years? Who am I? What am I doing? What kept my jet stream bright in the sky? Follow this post to see the outline of my life from 0 to 700 miles per hour, and from sea level all the way to living almost 40,000 feet up.
A lot of times people will say it takes time to change. While that is nothing but a true statement, I can also agree to the fact that it takes small and simple steps. There is no such thing as immediate results, as that would make life too easy. For the past long while I have learned a lot. The past six months has taught me a lot about both myself and the world as a whole. The importance of learning about yourself comes with time. No one is simply born with the knowledge of who they are as a person. Through years, experience, and effort we can all find out who we truly are.
You know what is interesting? This life is so beautiful and this world has so much to offer all of us. Whenever I look up at the sky, breathe a breath of fresh air, or even touch the plants, I feel that sheer connection with myself and nature. Finding that happy point is a necessity to 'finding' yourself as a person. For the longest time I did not know who I truly was. It took me about 16 years to finally figure out that I am an empath. Whenever I think about the fact that I am an empath I cannot help but be so thankful for this wonderful gift. Living as an empath is not always pretty, but I can assure that there are so many blessings that are associated with it.
"Empaths be like: I don't just listen to your words. I listen to the use of your words, your tone, your body movements, your eyes, your subtle facial expressions. I interpret your silences - I can hear everything you don't say in words.."
Empaths share this amazing connection with everyone. We understand people in a way that most people would not be able to even fathom. when I first found out that I was an empath I was in shock. I did not quite understand, but rather, it also took some time to accept and comprehend. Now I can say that it is more of a blessing than a curse.
Life comes along with so many different challenges, which require adaptations. The best thing for me has been learning who I am and learning my challenges. By finding that point I have been able to see myself succeed. Isn't that what life is about? One of my favorite things to do every year around that time of new years, I love to look back and find ways that I have changed. Every year I can assure that there is at least twenty things that I can count. Change is always so important and every one needs to take that into account. No matter what we think or feel about ourselves, we are all doing great. Change takes time, and the best changes take a little longer. My big change really took two years, and it took me 16 years to figure it out.
"Struggles make us flexible, challenges build us bigger, and trials make us stronger."
I was born for this... I was born to succeed and I was born to be me. That is one of the biggest things that I have learned. Aviation gives me a huge motivation to keep striving to succeed. With this new journey that lies ahead, I cannot wait to begin flight training. Welcome aboard to my journey. This whole adventure has been nothing, but a blessing to me. With that all being said, you all can do this, we can all do this.
"Flying is freedom and freedom is flight."
