What is it? Where does it come from? Well I looked it up.
There are many definitions to turbulence but the one that concerns us for this writing is… “Turbulence is a state or condition of confusion, movement, agitation or disorder.” www.dictionary.com
We hear about it all the time when we get on an airplane. Buckle your seatbelts just in case there is turbulence, even while you are sitting down. It’s quite amazing really and a very interesting phenomenon. You can be going along quite smoothly, minding your own business and all of a sudden there are bumps and drops and sudden shifts and dips. It could be for the duration of the entire trip. That’s annoying isn’t to have a bumpy ride? The great thing is you have been warned and prepared.
The Cabin Attendant gives the instructions to buckle up and the pilot does his best to make adjustments on the journey, in the event that there is turbulence, but for the most part you have to ride it out until you get to your destination. The funny thing is you can’t see turbulence but it’s there. It can be internal, external or both. Anything that changes your state of being is turbulence. One thing turbulence produces is change. You are never the same once you have traveled through it.
So where are you on your journey? The beginning and making preparation for take-off, all seems clear and sunny and bright? In the middle where you have had some shifts, bumps, dips and drops? Or the ending where the pilot has announced that you are coming in for the final approach and will be landing shortly and you can’t wait to get on the ground? Whether you are up in the air or the ground or on the sea it is unavoidable. You couldn’t miss it if you tried. So don’t try, just ride it out, it is easier and faster believe it or not. Struggling only makes it worse. RELAX!
Remember all is not lost, there is land ahead. You don’t know what you will meet there, but is seems better than where you are now, experiencing all this turbulence.
The most important thing to remember is that you are going through and this too shall pass.
So HOLD ON & BUCKLE UP!

TURBULENCE! (Buckle Up!)
In the past I have worn many hats. Clerk, Sales Associate, Manger, Owner (still am) and a lot of other things. Very recently I have become an author. Which has left me flabbergasted to say the least. Then I had the never to go and publish my own books. Oh my what was I thinking!.
Yes, I am now the author of Anya's Stories Book Series "Valuable Lessons" and it has been quite the undertaking, because not only did I write it, I had the nerve to go and illustrate it myself. Wow! What do you think is wrong with me (shaking my head) To compound this I have recently added a delightful turtle named Mookie to my repertoire and his first book Mookie's Excellent Adventure " Awakening" was published in October2014
I have found a new love in writing and illustrating. There is nothing I enjoy more than drawing the pictures that tell the story. Simplistic though they may be ( the drawings) I love doing it. I would rather create than sleep or do anything else in this world.
The part I don't like is the marketing, but, oh well, I guess when you decide to be your own publisher, you have to take some really bad medicine to get the job done and done well! So I suck it up daily, which doesn't work all the time.
Now to the really boring stuff!
Enisca L. Jones holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada and has been in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years. Yippeeee!
She loves to laugh and meet people. She loves to encourage others, is a great communicator who loves to read, enjoys a nice evening out and long walks on the beach.
I could say more, but frankly, I don't want to.
Have a great day and get a copy of my book for your kids or someone else kids! Toodles!
