When things go wrong (and they will)

Things will go wrong.  No doubt about it.  That is life.  However, how we react is the bit that really matters.  Expect the unexpected (so they say) but the reality is, the unexpected can absolutely knock you over and keep you down if you let it.  We can let an event or the action of someone else completely wipe out our self confidence, our trust and end up feeling completely battered and bewildered.  Or, we can stand up and accept what has happened is nothing we can change and move on.



I have been there.  I have felt shattered, confused, lost, hopeless. 


I have bawled my eyes out, yelled at God, told him in no uncertain terms how unfair life was and then crumbled into a mess on the floor.   It was then that I stood up.  It was then that I decided I didn't want to be a blubbering mess, I wanted to be confident again and live life.


The saying 'When things go wrong...don't go with it",  is a little defiant I know however, it is what I believe you need to do.  Don't let the 'wrong' stop you from achieving your goals or your dreams.  Don't let the 'wrong' slow you down, it is merely a speedbump.  Make some adjustments, change gears and keep moving forward!
