Things don’t always go as planned. That’s life. It happens to everyone. The true testament of growth and strength happens when things don’t go as planned…and how we handle the situation. Some obstacles come into our way, but we cannot stop making progress…no matter what! We have to keep moving forward!

Within a week I had so many mishaps from a totaled car, to a crashed laptop, to having my car broken into. Every day it felt like something different went wrong. Always something that was trying to hold me back from making progress toward my goals. It was so bad at one point that, all I could do was laugh at how annoyed I was. All I knew was that I had to keep pushing, and each mishap led me to something better. Each mishap was uncomfortable at the time, but the outcomes have been great. Of course things will go wrong in life….but how we react is what makes us stronger.

So when things don’t go as planned…take a deep breath…give your body a shake…smile at how much stronger you will be once you get through the obstacle…and march forward. YOU GOT THIS!
