Ever had to change really big plans because something happened that made it all different?
And what did it make you feel? Are you a controlfreak like me, getting extremely annoyed if things don't go as planned? Or are you the type of person to say: It is what it is. I'll adapt to the new situation without a problem.
I did - recently. I wanted to go to the big business convention in Atlanta, but had to stay behind due to a terminally ill relative. I'm a bit of a control freak (face it - a lot of caregivers are control freaks), but Oxycise and just exercise are just two things that de-stress me.
I am adapting to a new situation. I think being flexible makes life easier.
Yes. In the past I used to worry about changing plans. Today I am not so likely to get upset.
In one instance I had planned a long holiday, six weeks, in fairly lengthy detail with a then girlfriend. A couple of weeks before she broke up with me.
So let the plane tickets go? No I decided it was the trip of a lifetime and went anyway. As things turned out it was a more wonderful trip than I had planned. Instead of staying in one place I travelled at the spur of the moment whereever I felt was good. After having a great time I realised I had missed so much worrying about plans.
I've had to adapt to the situation all my life and even though I've had to start over many times I still think the best is still to come.
Yes, when my daughter married. It was going to be a small wedding and the invitations were in the mail. She got very anxious about it decided she wanted a private ceremony. So we had to un-invite everyone. It was a hassled but I just sort of went with the flow as it was about her and not me.
She is still married 12 years later with 2 kids so it worked out.
I am not what I would call easy-going but I am compared to my husband and one daughter who are control-freaks and do not take to change well.
I was disappointed for sure. But on the other hand, it was something that could not be helped. There was no one to blame, it was life and sometimes we have to rearrange our plans.
