It’s a quiet Friday night. That’s where today’s story begins. On my way back home from work I listen to the radio. While doing so, I dangerously distract passing cars, because I look like a mad man behind wheels. I am dancing and singing at the top of my voice to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of you”. And I do this as awkwardly as I possibly can. But I don’t care – it’s the beginning of the weekend after all.
In between sweaty dance moves and traffic reports I hear the current weather forecast. Spring is upon us they say. So I immediately think that shooting this season’s first spring-ish outfit for the blog would be a great idea…
This is what it remained to be – and idea – because what we’ve encountered the next morning was everything but a springlike event. It was freakin’ winter wonderland!
No big deal
Change of plans. I put my spring wardrobe back into the depths of my closet. It’s no big deal. We live in a world of imperfect information – surprises are guaranteed. And this is certainly not limited to the weather forecast only. I mean, would you have predicted the Brexit to actually happen? Don’t get me even started on Trump…
So, ambiguity is now part of our lives and while I enjoy it occasionally, I still find it very surprising when others seem to be completely incapable of coping with the unexpected.
Aren’t the best memories the ones we didn’t expect to happen? Isn’t plan B usually more rewarding than plan A? If you are facing the unexpected, I strongly believe that you shouldn’t waste time wishing things were different. Instead, assess and acknowledge the new situation, commit to plan B and make the most of it.
Don’t deny yourself the opportunity to start with a blank page – just as white as this freakin’ winter wonderland …
