Fluid situations are not something I’m comfortable with, but that’s life.

With time and age, one learns to roll with the punches, go with the flow or adapt to the circumstances.

Gone are the days when I would imagine things or events in my mind a certain way and work hard to make that happen. Invariably some thing would go astray, having a chain reaction and then I’d have to adjust everything.

Now I start with a working idea and keep on changing it to fit the circumstances, instead of doing it the other way around.

If the situation is fluid, one should flow with it so that we can achieve our goals more amicably!

  1. Very nice. I know people who plan everything down to who’ll talk with whom or which food each person will eat at a gathering. Those people have an inflated idea of their ability to predict the future and are always disappointed. 😉

  2. “Now I start with a working idea and keep on changing it to fit the circumstances, instead of doing it the other way around.” That’s so wise, and reminds me of a growth mindset. Always adapting to the current reality. Super helpful. Awesome write, Sadje.

  3. You are so wise! I am not naturally a planner, but I have never liked change… something I am working on. It’s so important to be in the moment – to accept that we don’t really have control even if we want it. Rolling with the punches tends to be the better option. Less disappointment. Thanks for sharing! x

  4. Beautiful message, Sadje.

    I used to hate it when things don’t go as planned and then my overthinking, anxious brain goes haywire. I’ve slowly learned to be mote adaptable, more fluid. I continue to work on it.

  5. Your 6th sentence, Sadje. I totally agree! If one is not already inclined, flexibility and adaptability are 2 characteristics worth nurturing. Both have the potential to bring about unexpected riches when least expected.
