So, without a doubt, planning is a useful tool that we use to navigate through life: Planning a vacation so we don’t spend the majority of our time wondering what to do next, planning our meals so we don’t have to ask the daily dreaded question, “What’s for dinner?”, planning our work day to make sure we accomplish all our most important tasks, yada, yada, yada. Planning = Important.
But, sometimes, stuff happens and we just have to run with it. We have to think quickly, make decisions on the fly, and roll. I know it causes some people stress and anxiety to be forced to quickly veer from the path they had mentally drawn for themselves to an unknown, make-it-up-as-you-go scenario. Personally, I find these situations to be fun. Adventurous. Life would be pretty boring if we always knew what we were going to do next.
So, here I am sitting in a hotel room in Moncton with nothing but time on my hands in the middle of a major snowstorm. My husband is here. My kids are not. At the moment, there’s power, internet and I have a book. Pretty cool adventure. I might go build a snowman later. Sorry kids.
