You Don’t Have To

I seriously relate to this!

Abby Has Issues

There’s a lot of guilt and obligation floating around both online and off. And while you don’t have to believe a word that I say—trust me, I don’t always believe these myself—just for today, try.

You don’t have to hide your quirks. They make you unique.

You don’t have to drink coffee, and if you do, it doesn’t have to be designer Arabica beans or a $6 latte from Starbucks.

You don’t have to love a certain food because everyone else seems to love it. You can if you want, but do it for you. Not for any other reasons.

You don’t have to check your phone right this minute. Remember how life was a decade ago? Whatever it is can wait.

You don’t have to be the best parent, spouse or friend, but you do have to be there when those people need you.

You don’t have to love…

How Safe Are We Really?

Flying is one of my favorite things to do! I love the hustle & bustle of airports, the excitement of people going to see loved one’s or going on a trip of a lifetime. I love the sound of the suitcase wheels rolling against the ground.

This was just a quick trip to Anaheim for the week-end. It doesn’t matter how many times I have flown, I always love looking out the window and take pictures. As I was snapping away taking photo’s, I noticed a screw missing on the right engine, see picture above. Hmmmmm, interesting. Probably not an issue, but how do I know for sure? I’m sure the pilot and crew are not going to fly a plane that is mechanically compromised, right?

I know there is a check list of sorts between flights. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an employee do a walk-a-round the airplane for a quick look. I could be wrong. I hope I’m wrong. The area missing the screw is a panel, that moves backwards to slow down the plane upon landing. Kind of important. Obviously the flight was fine, the landing was fine as well, but that missing screw doesn’t didn’t sit right with me.
