One-Way Airplane Tickets …


Airplane RIde - Presenter Media 7140WE USUALLY FLY ROUND-TRIP, DON’T WE?

We start somewhere that we think of as home and we fly off to another location.

Maybe we are traveling for work, or to visit family, to take a vacation, or participate in an event.  We might be looking forward to the trip or dreading the touchdown of the wheels in that other place.  If we travel often, we no longer notice the little details of flying and simply spend the time as we desire, productively or not.

We expect and arrange to fly back to home when we are finishing doing whatever we have traveled to do.  Our trip home may reflect exhaustion, exhilaration, or quiet satisfaction.

BUT WE ALWAYS EXPECT TO COME HOME …

EXCEPT SOMETIMES WE DON’T …

We buy a one-way ticket to somewhere else with the intention to stay, either for a long time, forever, or maybe just until we decide to leave.

What if we bought a one-way ticket to somewhere, with the idea that when we landed, we were at our new home and had to create a new life in that place?  No return-trip ticket or boarding pass …

In reality, you don’t even have to fly … you can drive, take a bus, ride the train, or just travel in your own mind to a new place where you are planning to stay for quite a while.

HAVE YOU EVER GONE SOMEWHERE ON A “ONE-WAY” TICKET?

HOW DID THAT WORK OUT FOR YOU?

WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE IN YOUR TRAVEL PLANS NEXT TIME?
