Maple Leaf Lounge action at LAX.
Have you ever felt like you are in the exact right place at the exact right time?
I felt like that when I was sitting at the Los Angeles airport in the Maple Leaf Lounge with my travel bosom buddy Aine. She was attending a conference in Santa Barbara and just so happened to have been on the same flight as me to sit with me . The same freaking flight!
Couldn't have planned it if I tried.
Talk about angels letting me know I'm on the right track.
I had a slew of goodbyes leading up to my flight. My friends were sad but encouraging. I held myself together largely by distracting myself with the tasks at hand, of which there were many. But sadness would rise in quiet moments of my days, like when I was doing dishes... or walking away.
Then there were the people I just couldn't fit in to see before I left, so I apologize to them about that.
Sometimes you just have to let yourself go.
So I did.
See you on the flip side.
