JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 333 :: delayed and d-elated

2 Dec

Reporting from SFO tonight. Delayed.

The flights keep getting pushed back due to a complete west coast weather cluster. Apparently even Los Angeles has weather. Los Angeles!

As I sit here trying to zap all the free WIFI I can (thank you SFO) I can’t help but wonder about delays. Every time I am delayed it is for a bigger/better reason it seems. Like the time my family missed a head-on collision while visiting the Oregon Coast.

At the time a really annoying tourist kept walking in front of us on the boardwalk back to our car. It was so frustrating even my Saint (with a capital S) of a mother, Mama Sling, called him a bad name.  And she never called anyone a bad name. Believe me. It was a big deal.

It turned out to be an even bigger deal. A save really. Because just as we pulled out of the parking lot a car crossed our path and rammed into the side of the road in front of us. A near miss.

That annoying man who made my mother say things she never said about anyone basically saved our lives.  Because we were delayed. Delayed and D-Saved. Which made us D-Elated!

So I sit here tonight wondering why I am delayed. For bigger and better reasons? Maybe? Maybe not? Peak performance is, after all, about timing. 

More tomorrow.
