Alternatives often are better than original plans.

Usually, we think we know what we need or want. With some regularity, life has other ideas. What we get then differs from our original vision.

When this happens, we may feel frustrated or disappointed. Why couldn’t we get have what we wanted?

Our chagrin blinds us to the possible merits of our alternatives. As long as we are stuck on our initial desire, we won’t be willing to explore and likely enjoy other options.

Today’s message invites me to consider that alternatives to my first choice may be an upgrade. Keeping an open mind allows me to leverage the best of my opportunities.

Please reflect and share. Are your plans flexible?
