Unexpected Life Changes

How do you react or respond when things don’t go as you planned?  When you think you have your life all figured out, how you see the next months, years… decade?

Ah.  That’s what life is all about!  The lessons we learn when we realize we are NOT as in ‘control’ as we thought we were.  First comes the confusion… then you get humble, then you may go through a phase of ‘how did this happen’.  Maybe you’ll waste time on the ‘why’… but in the end… it’s how you stop and really ask yourself.. ‘What’s NEXT?
