Embrace the Unexpected
We are taught to fear the unexpected: to think ahead, to plan, to prepare, to want things to go our way and worry that they won’t. But, nine times out of ten, the unexpected will happen.
We’re not saying traffic won’t be terrible at 8:45 tomorrow morning, or that you shouldn’t start saving for retirement with your first paycheck (because you totally should). We’re saying life will surprise you, and often delight you. That there are great things in store for you, and all you have to do is the next right thing.
Sometimes the next right thing is just putting one foot in front of the other. Other times, it’s much scarier and far more daunting than that: asking for a raise, starting a relationship, leaving the job, ending a relationship, going back to school, moving cities.
That’s when embracing the unexpected counts the most.
