So, today was a big day for me and I’m very thankful for it! I’ve been keeping my future ideas kinda private, but I think now is a pretty good time to share. I also feel like maybe y’all could have guessed them haha.
I went on a discovery flight today! A discovery flight is what it sounds like. It’s a flight to introduce you to flying. It’ll help you decide if it’s something you want to pursue or not.
It was a lot of fun and I honestly wish it was longer haha. I’m also very thankful I went early and didn’t have any problems considering now there’s weather and it’s raining. I went at the perfect time and I’m very thankful for that as well.
It was a lot of fun. I have been thinking about pursuing a career in aviation other than being a flight attendant. I’ll be honest with y’all, I love being a flight attendant but I think being a pilot would be something I love more. It’s all a work in progress and I honestly have to think about what path I want to take now. There are a few different paths I could go down and it’s kind of a stressful thing to deal with, but I’m excited to see what the future has in store.
I am very blessed to have such opportunities. I am also very thankful to have the funds for something like a discovery flight. It’s not considered cheap, but neither is the path to being a pilot. I’m very fortunate to be in the situation I’m in where I can afford the time and money to go fly a plane for a little bit. It was so much fun and I am so happy I finally got over my fear and did it.
The funny thing is that I wasn’t even all that scared to fly. I was more scared to go to a place I’ve never been to before and deal with people I’ve never met! I know I work a job with customer service but I still have social anxiety haha. I overthink things too much when reality it’s never that bad. Such as today. I put it off for at least a month and a half and it was something that was a lot of fun and they were super nice to me. So, I really didn’t need to worry that much.
Anyway, that was the career change I’ve been thinking about. Like I said I mainly have to think about what path I wanna take because there are quite a few roads I could go down and I wanna make sure I choose the path that makes ME happiest. I am thankful to have such a supportive family and to have had the opportunity to go up in the air and not worry about serving people haha.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post and I hope y’all have a wonderful day!! ❤
