For years, I told my teams to “expect the unexpected.” Today, I would tell them the same thing. Always expect the unexpected. Life is full of surprises and just when you think you have everything figured out…the unexpected happens. That’s life. That’s how it goes. Plan on it. Expect the unexpected.
Reiki has taught me how to go with the flow of life – no matter what happens. This is not always the easiest thing to do. But, when we realize that all timing is divine, and we are right where we are supposed to be, the unexpected can be embraced as a learning experience. Change is the only constant in our lives and when we adapt to any new unexpected challenges, we become stronger and better able to handle change.
I have many battle scars from unexpected things that have happened in my life, and I wear them like a badge of honor. My mantra is to always keep moving forward – no matter what. This is a commitment that I made to myself years ago. We must keep moving forward. When we do this, we release all things that are holding us back and not serving our best interests. We feel lighter by releasing heavy burdens and then we rise!
Expect the unexpected and learn everything you can from the experience. Then, keep moving forward – no matter what. Believe in your ability to adapt and grow and roll with the punches. You will be amazed at how strong you really are as you rise to the next challenge and enjoy the little victories along the way.
