Woody Allen is known for many things and credited as being the person that first said…If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.
Ever plan a trip? What happens just before you leave? You get busy!
Ever plan a big event? What happens? The weather gets in the way or you find yourself under the weather.
Ever think you have it all set and ready to go? If I may be so bold as to quote God “HA HA that’s what you think”
This isn’t all bad and usually finds us in a place that we should have been instead of where we thought we were going.
Have a goal. Have a target. Have a plan. Just be ready for changes to come your way.
These changes, these challenges and these moments are what develop our character and help us to find out who we really are.
Are you the person that is calm under pressure or the one that breaks down and ends up in the corner not sure what to do? Are you on that thrives on the unexpected or one that needs things to go as planned? Are you someone who can be truly counted on by those that would need you?
Are you ready for your plans to be changed at a moments notice? Here are a few things you can do to be as ready as possible…
1) Take a moment to tell those in your life that are important to you how you feel. This way you will never regret if something is taken from you
2) Forget about your Bucket List – that is a list of things you will do “one of these days” Instead look at your list and figure out your Carousel Rings on that list and grab them! Not sure what your carousel rings are just check out this past posting
3) Journal all of it! Your thoughts, your feelings, your memories. Capture them someplace that you will have them forever and be able to share them with those closest to you.
Do these things and when your plans are changed be it a little thing or a big thing you will be able to deal with it better!
Chadalyst – Be ready for change – if it can happen, it will happen when you are least ready for it. How will you prepare?
