A to Z Challenge: Enumeration

Enumeration keeps you alert and responsive. If you learn to recall the good things that have unexpectedly happened to you each day you will soon learn to recognize the opportunity in being prepared for the unplanned.

Each time I make plans to do something they tend to turn out differently. Instead of getting frustrated when this happens I’ve learned to just go with it. Now I either plan for change or plan to be at least open to the likelihood that things will change.

Expectation management leads to something else getting reinforced.  It’s that I shouldn’t get too attached to my plans in the first place. Life will go on if things don’t go exactly as expected. They are only plans, not an algorithm. I am not a robot and neither are others I interact with unfortunately. It’s okay and even good to explore a diversion now and again.

Eventually I’ve become more at ease with change and I even look forward to seeing the degree to which things don’t go according to plan. Many times with a new perspective, things end up better than expected.
