Plan On Things Changing

Plans can change, and often time it's for the better!

Isn't it funny how life often gets in the way of your best laid plans?  Sometimes it seems that no matter how much time and energy you put into planning something, something comes up, and everything changes.  I use to be resistant to change. Now, I welcome it because most times it leads me to something better.  I have learned to harmonize with my environment, and to welcome a new outlook on an old situation; therefore, I have become a happy change agent.

 Thought for the day:

 Patience is the catalyst to embracing change.  Often time the unexpected outcome is far better than the one you had imagined or planned.

You are right change is like the weather unpredictable. A good read to help you adapt to change is 'Who Moved My Cheese'......
