You plan, you prep, you make lists and keep a schedule, but sometimes no matter how much you try, things don’t go as planned. How does that happen?
What happens when you do plan and do everything else possible to stay on schedule, and yet you cannot seem to make things work? You go to plan B! It’s not always easy for me to do, especially when I have my mind set on things going one way.
Things happen; life happens, and one must not only be able to accept that things may not go as planned (that’s the hard part for me), but also be at peace with Plan B. One must know full well that although the outcome is different than anticipated, it doesn’t make it wrong, and it definitely does not equal failure.
Just when you think you can’t make things work or feel like you have failed, remember, God may have a plan B for you!
