I have flown over 31,000 miles, in less than 8 weeks, for my commute to work.
Five countries, 18 cities….. and its overwhelming what can take place in 53 days.
Not only with the jobs we do, the places we go but with the family & friends we leave behind. Couples break up. A husband discovers his wife is pregnant. A family member goes into the hospital for emergency surgery. A dear friend dies. A tornado sweeps thru your home town….. we miss out on all the good things. We avoid the bad things. We miss out on it all. The whole time thinking we have it all, that we have the life everybody wants to lead. And we do, we really do - because once we step foot on the plane or climb in the bunk of the tour bus, life as we know it is suspended in time. Ready to resume upon our arrival home weeks later. But what’s most distressing is that an extreme lifestyle leads to extreme situations, that frankly once you tour, you have trouble coping with the reality of daily life. So, despite the struggle to continue to tour, once you reach the burn out point, sometimes going home isn’t an option….it’s more difficult than to simply stay on tour, traveling the world and working with celebrities.
