A.K.A. Dealing with the Curveballs
March Madness, Day 20.
We’re rounding the bend towards the last leg of this creative relay race.
What are just a few of the reasons why we’re doing all this? Check out Denise Jaden’s blog.
It’s so easy to make plans with the best of intentions, but life happens. No matter what we hope for ourselves, there are those moments that leave us at a bit of a crossroads.
Deadlines begin to blur or story ideas you had ironed out get a huge wrinkle. Heck, you might end up with two different language exams back to back and work through them on little to no sleep.
And when life happens, you still have to move forward. You have to deal with each curveball as it comes. You’re stronger for it. You make it through.
It’s hardly ever easy. Then again, where’s the fun in that? You have to roll with the punches, go with the flow. Plans change. We adjust. It’s how it works. It’s how we work.
It’s all a matter of perception.
But when you get handed those tangy edible little footballs, why make lemonade? There are so many ways to get creative.
Don’t be a square.
Versatility is key.
Life’s full of surprises but we can get through it. Deadlines will loom, but the words will fill the page. It might not be what we’d originally planned, but sometimes the unexpected is the best thing for you.
Tomorrow’s another day. See you at Dawn’s blog.

But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need.”
