“We must let go of the lives we have planned for ourselves so as to have the life that is planned for us”.

Truthfully, no matter how much you plan, things don’t always work out according to plan.  Layoffs happen.  People get sick.  People sometimes die.  Sometimes it’s best to let go, and pick yourself up and keep going.  I know that there have been a number of times in my life where things went seriously wrong, and against my plan.  Sometimes, it’s little things, like the road I’m needing to get on being blocked, and having to make  a detour.  It can be incredibly difficult to accept that perhaps there is another plan for us in life.  Whether you believe in fate, God’s plan, or just picking yourself up.  Sometimes you just have to accept, and keep on going.
