Sometimes it ends up different and it is better that way.
Let’s face it. It would be perfect if things always resolved themselves the way we wanted them to. But they don’t. They don’t, and we’ll just have to deal with it because c’est la vie. Yet I think the funny thing is how we’ve made out change to be something horrid. Any situation that ends up differently from what we originally planned is somehow instantly a disaster.
But different doesn’t mean ‘worse’. A change in original plans doesn’t have to be an earth-shattering, bone-breaking thing, because, believe it or not, sometimes the unexpected can be beautiful. The best moments in life can’t and aren’t planned out. They’re the things that you didn’t see coming. The things that take you by surprise and sweep you off your feet. And you know what? Sometimes, or rather, more often than not, that type of thing is better.
If you wanted it, and you worked toward it, and it didn’t work out quite the way you hoped, maybe it was never meant to be. But that’s okay, because when one door closes, another opens, leaving you available to seize newer and potentially better opportunities that were meant to be.
And I know that sometimes this is hard to believe, but things always work out, one way or another. They do. And a friend once said to me, “Either we make it happen, or the chaotic nature of the universe does. Our satisfaction with the results, however, is not always guaranteed.”
So head up high, because there are great things ahead. And always remember, you can have it different, and you can have it better.
