I missed my flight by 1 minute..

How can you miss a flight by 1 minute? Well, you can! 🙂 Here is how that happened.


I received an email from OneTravel (that is where I bought the ticket), that my flight is delayed and will be leaving at 10 pm. I got to the airport at 8:45 pm just to find out that yes it was delayed, but now it’s not, and the airplane is leaving at 9:20 pm, just as it was originally scheduled.

Did I get another email about that? No 🙂

I couldn’t do the check in myself so I got helped by one of the airport employees.  She looked at me and said : ” You can’t take this plane. You missed it by 1 minute and 6 seconds” 

One can argue that life in this situation is unfair. I could be mad and try to fight with the system. I think I could do all sorts of things but I didn’t. I was put on a standby list for a plane leaving 3 hours later.

Ok, but where does this whole story leads us to?

When I created this blog, (over a year ago now!), I chose a name happydays, because I believe that we can find positives in everything (almost! 🙂 ). That is why I wanted to share this story with you!

For example, I got an exit row! So nice right? Sooo much space for legs (not that I need it, I’m very short haha) But hey! I felt super lucky! 🙂 I missed my flight by 1 min, but at least I got to exit row on the next flight! 😎


Missing a flight is not the end of the world. Yes, you could be late to something, or even miss a meeting but there are worse things that are happening in the world. Don’t even make me give you examples.. You know exactly what I am talking about.

Soooo take a chill pill! Sit down, relax, use this time for something meaningful. Read a book, talk to your family, write a blog post 🙂

What can you do, if you can’t do anything? 🤗

Maybe today is a good day to notice what’s good in your life! Not bad, GOOD 🙂
