Helicopters, Perspective, and JOY.







It got me thinking…how often do we experience things one way and the people around us experience it in a completely different way? Is that ok?

Helicopters, Perspective, and JOY.


Recently I got to do something REALLY cool, take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon!

It was one of the best things I have ever done, and the views were out of this world (felt like I was in a painting). I could have ridden around the sky forever!


It was interesting though, because after about 40 minutes the pilot stopped the helo (yes, feeling very hip on the lingo) for us to take pictures in the canyon and toast with a glass of bubbly.


I hopped out of the backseat expecting to hear everyone say, WOW this is awesome! However, two of the six passengers weren’t feeling great (motion sick). Their perspective on the trip was one of, “It’s neat to see and for the first twenty minutes it was great, but I probably won’t do this again.”

I had to remind myself that two things can be true at the same time…You can be having a lot of JOY and feel empathy and give support to others also. And, our journey’s (and version of JOY) are unique to us.


Thankfully, no one got sick, and we all (on varying levels) enjoyed the experience and took some great memories with us.


If you aren’t sensitive to motion, I highly recommend adding a helo ride in the sky to your bucket list / joy calendar.
