You know, I’m beginning to think that when all of your plans fall apart for some reason, it is always because there is something better that is coming your way. It has taken me so long to get here, but every single time I panic and wonder just what the hell I am supposed to do about a situation, something better usually does come along when I least expect it. That is not to say I am easy-going about my life. I am constantly in a state of ‘what comes next?’ and ‘am I putting in enough work?’ while knowing fully well that I am doing the best I can.
If you think there is some earth-shattering revelation behind me saying this, there really isn’t. My cousin was taking some photos of me yesterday and a lot of them turned out incredibly blurred. But then I realized that blurry photos could still be turned into something artistic and it is a concept that I have never worked with before. Things always seem to head in a completely different direction when I plan things out with the intention of following them through, but I think that most of it has always been for the best.
I think that we are primed to immediately feel disappointed the moment things don’t seem to go our way, but we forget that the end is nowhere near and that jumping to conclusions is never really a good idea. Thinking that we are out of options just because something hasn’t gone the way we planned is kind of restrictive to our own capabilities. We know that we are capable of surprising ourselves, so why is it that we think we cannot make it out of a situation that we can handle if we gave ourselves the chance?
Maybe you can turn things around in your favour and turn it into something better. Xx
