Ah, the ebbs and flows of our lives.
Pretty much on a regular basis we find ourselves wondering how to cope with the unexpected “new something” that has just occurred, potentially rendering havoc of all manner and kind.
So here’s a thought: Consider becoming more flexible, with both your thinking and your actions or should I say reaction (humans are very reactionary by nature).
Consider adapting to your life experiences instead of rigidly always sticking to a previously determined game plan. There are no guarantees in one’s life. No sure thing. Often you get to where you want to be – by going the (perceived) wrong way!
Well, personally I do have more than just a bit of a clue (Alastair, of “A Mixed Bag” has it on good authority – his own, and I do appreciate the compliment, that I am originally from another planet – perhaps, LOL – where we are ahead of earth beings in various matters) however, regarding the subject of “Going With The Flow”, I believe this is something you should learn for yourself. Don’t take my other worldy word for it.
The next time life leaps up and takes a bite out of you, don’t be so quick to fight it. Look beyond the obvious of what is happening. Is it an opportunity in disguise? Is it a clue to change directions? Is it a hint to pay more attention to a thing that would be beneficial to you in the long run. You can’t know if you stay too restrictive with your decisions, can you?
Just something to think on – at least a little – every now and then – in between your being social correct.
One more thought:

A very special friend of mine, Lisa, of Playamart – Zeebra Designs, whose current home is in Ecuador, suggested the following post be added to this one. I agree completely with her. http://playamart.wordpress.com/2012/02/24/the-undertow/. Definitely of value and worth the clicking through and reading! Thank you, Lisa.
