I have no doubt that more than one of you reading this will already suspect that you know what I'm about to say. Or maybe you too have been itching to find out what I was rambling on about back in December. Read on.
The universe has a very sneaky way of throwing you little curve balls. Just when you think you're on track to getting things the way you've dreamed, something comes along which stops you in your tracks. Now there are one of two ways you can choose to deal with unplanned situations.
Option 1. Kick, scream, wail, go on a rant and rave about how unfair your life is, post a very sourpuss update on Facebook about woe is me, get upset and act like you belong on an episode of tantrums and tiaras
Option 2. Embrace change, see the glass as half-full, work through the options, believe that everything happens for a reason, take it in your stride, make the most of it and appreciate the opportunity to be challenged
So after option one, I of course move swiftly onto option two. Shock and surprise can often make you think irrationally so another good one is to sleep on it. Things are always clearer after a good sleep (and some long thinking time in the shower).
So by now you're probably thinking to yourself, has this lady lost her marbles? Is she on some new self-help regime with the commencement of a new year? For goodness sake, what is she talking about!?
It could be the hormones or my new outlook on life, but I can assure you I am not crazy. Not just yet. At least not until the Alzheimers kicks in (prediction alert).
Now that I've used up all my words, I'm just going to leave you with a visual aid.
