Travel complications don’t always have to be a frustrating affair.  Just because you’ve been inconvenienced or entered a situation you didn’t expect is no cause for a long face!  😉

A perfect example comes from Mahshid Mazooji, who missed her connecting flight in Charlotte, and was stranded all night long.  Most folks seem to think their only option is to grumble and moan and drag down everyone within earshot.  But instead of getting angry, she wandered the airport and danced with everyone she could find.


Aristotle said, “The man who is truly good and wise will bear with dignity whatever fortune sends, and will always make the best of his circumstances.”

You can turn anything into a positive experience when you have the proper mindset.  If you can laugh at normally upsetting situations, you’ll enjoy your travels more than most.  And you might even brighten the day (or night!) of your fellow human beings!
