When was the last time you booked a vacation?
Flights, hotel, car service?
I had been struggling to get this done for days.
I finally sat down, and hours later had it “perfect”.
I pulled out my credit card and paid for the trip.
I didn’t choose the “insurance” the first time.
Then, before I pressed “Accept”, I had this weird feeling… “Cindy, check the box”.
So, I did.
I received confirmation that all had been booked successfully.
A little while later, I decided to put all the trip details in my calendar.
All was going well until…you guessed it…there was an error!
My name was spelled incorrectly. OMG!!!
I spent over an hour, on and off hold, with the travel agency.
I was passed around from one department to the other.
The music, while on hold, was NOT calming at all.
I think my heartbeat was running at least 1 ½ times its normal rate.
Between the fast-paced and irritating music, my mind was creating all kinds of disastrous scenarios.
Those thoughts—and that music— were NOT helping my state of mind.
Finally, a live person came on the line to tell me all had been fixed; my confirmation had been corrected.
I began to think—more clearly now—”What if they couldn’t correct my name?”
Well, I was within the 24-hour cancellation window. I could just cancel the reservation and start again.
So, really what was the worst that could happen?? Just those awful feelings I was already experiencing.
What a trip that was…and, I am not talking about my travel I had planned…the trip our mind takes us on.
Even for those of us who have practiced being better at choosing the thoughts that serve us.
Yes, I am not perfect, but I can help you in times like these.
Let me help you live your best life…let’s talk!
