When life doesn’t go according to plan

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Get your goals | 5 comments

How often does life go according to plan, really? My life doesn’t often happen the way I think it will, the way I want it to, or the way I plan for it to go.

A lot of things haven’t been going according to plan lately, but it strikes me that life isn’t bad- not bad at all- just not what I was going for. For example, publishing a new post on Friday instead of Monday.

Sometimes I find myself feeling frustrated or overwhelmed that life isn’t going according to plan- don’t we all? Then I remember that I don’t need to get what I want to be happy. (Yes, really!) And I remember that success is making the best of the life I have.

So what if life doesn’t go according to plan? All I really have to do is adjust my plan and make the most of what’s in front of me.

Today I will be happy because whether or not life goes according to plan, I choose to be happy. Today I will make the best of today. Today I will live a purposeful life and realized it doesn’t matter how it all turns out in the end (and it will all turn out okay in the end!) I invite you to join me!

  1. Same here Chrsyta 😀

    I think a lot of people today are just too serious, they need to relax more and take life less seriously (life is serious, but it should also be enjoyable, kind of like a roller coaster ride :D).

    My problem now is that I think I am being too soft on myself (things don’t always work the way we want to be, but sometimes I use this excuse to skip my routine activities; justifying my laziness or procrastination).

    I am working on changing that though 😀 Hopefully it will go well! Anyways, thank you for sharing this, Chrysta! Appreciate it :)

  2. Hello; the key is to properly define success as you are doing. Its not about getting your way or making lots of money or even having a post go viral; its about doing your best with the abilities talents information etc that you have available to you today. I know i am successful even though my bank account could be fuller. As a blind blogger I have recently come to understand from my readers that just showing up every day week and month inspires them to keep going. How cool is that? thanks for sharing and we are both doing great. take care, Max Your message…

  3. YoWell hello Chrysta, this is a great message on a great day. I am in the UK, the sun is shining in a beautiful blue sky and my windows have been opened for the first time this year.

    So although I could focus on the many unfinished plans and things that are not going quite right at the moment, today’s beautiful and welcome return of blue skies reminds me to be grateful for and to focus on the positives using this energy to transform all parts of my life and those around me.
