I’ve had this saying going through my head a lot recently. I don’t know why, but it seems like a lot of unexpected things have been happening recently. Both good and bad.
For starters, I saw a good friend over the weekend that I haven’t seen in a long time. We met by chance at a restaurant that we happened to both be at. We didn’t have much time to talk, but it was good to see him and know he is doing well.
On the flip side, I got to clean up some “throw up” that my dog left on the floor last night. Yes, I know you probably didn’t want to hear that, but it helps me make my point…
Why don’t we expect the unexpected?
While these two events were not predictable by any means, they are certainly not out of the ordinary. Both types of things have happened to me previously, and they are sure to happen again.
What does this information tell us, and how can it help us?
Well it tells us that life is fascinating and exciting. And it is unpredictable, and to a certain degree fun. That is, if you enjoy the excitement that comes from something out of your normal everyday routine.
It can help us too if we let it. Nothing causes more stress then letting all these random things in life get to you. You need to learn to roll with the punches. Be like water. Water flows around everything yet it’s strength is not diminished.
So don’t let things get to you. They will happen. Things won’t always go the way you planned, the way you think, or the way you want them too. Things will happen. Flow with them.
Expect the unexpected….
