Oh the unexpected.

Just when I thought everything was going along smoothly down my river of life, a new rock or twig presents itself and creates diversions I didn’t anticipate.

The unexpected often brings disappointment to the forefront…and it can manifest in a number of ways in our mind and body if it goes unchecked. So instead of being weighed down by what I can’t control, I’m learning to see the unexpected as an opportunity. A chance for new possibilities.

Truth is my greatest successful moments have come out of unexpected situations which didn’t seem great at the time, but turned my life around.

As so many great teachers remind me: everything I face is either a blessing or a lesson. I’m going to cling to that when I hit the next pothole in life.
