Action: Oftentimes, we are caught unaware when life throws us a curveball. We get comfortable, we get complacent, and we forget that life is unpredictable. Expecting the unexpected is a reminder to us that life is fragile and needs to be cherished and treated with respect. I don’t mean for this to be doom and gloom. Anything can and will happen, that means both good and bad. Good things can also happen unexpectedly, especially when you take chances and live your life to the fullest. Don’t let fear of the unexpected hold you back. Know that the possibility exists and have a healthy respect for it. And maybe when you know the possibility exists for unexpected things, plan for it. Have a backup plan. You don’t have to have backup plans for your backup plans, but there’s nothing wrong with having a contingency plan in place, just in case.
