Its funny how sometimes no matter how hard you plan things they always turn out different. And more often than not, it isn't bad...it is just different. I am reminded of an old dutch saying which roughly translated means: "Don't fret it will happen differently anyhow."
I think its important that we remain open, ready to work with the changes, because if you are grounded you can never move from that spot, it is harder to grow, and too learn some of life's most valuable experiences. Sometimes I feel that I need to act more like water, when water is trapped it finds a new path.
I had another random thought while thinking of life and plans... let's face it many of us fret over our "life plans." I think that it is important to keep this in mind when dealing with important plans...Plan to be surprised.
