Often times in life we operate dependent upon preconceived notions of what is “supposed to be.” This can serve as an anxiety reliever because we have “a plan.” However, life has no patience for your plans. It will create a detour on your path. It is inevitable. If our plan is very steadfast, we will experience anxiety. Our plans and notions of what life is or should be need to be malleable. Life is not black and white. It is grey.
