Sometimes we have to surrender our plans and expectations and simply let life happen.

Things can change in any number of ways: interruptions, cancellations, delays, and unexpected challenges to name a few. It can be as big as a family member falling ill or as small as your child wanting to play when you are trying to squeeze in a few work emails. In fact, as I sat down to write this morning, my son came running into my office with a huge grin and gave me a hug and kiss. As strongly as I feel about being disciplined during my scheduled writing time, I know that my family is my number one priority. I’m also acutely aware that these moments are fleeting and to be cherished.

When you are being taken off course ask yourself what is more important than what is happening in this moment? If you can think of something, then don’t delay and get cracking on it. If you can’t think of anything, then be fully present and embrace it with your whole being.
