What to Do When Unexpected Things Occur in Life – Shift Happens!
Several years ago, I started paying attention to my dreams. Well, one dream in particular. It was a reoccurring dream. Although, it wasn’t a frequent dream, I did recognize that I had experienced this same dream on more than one occasion.
In the dream, I was traveling on a long winding road. The road had many twists and turns. Each time that I had the dream, it would inevitably end the same way. I would encounter a quick turn in the road and I would miss it. When I missed the turn, you may be wondering what would happen to me? Well, I’ll tell you, I would run off the road. Every single time, it was the same outcome.
I was processing the dream one day in an effort to figure out what the dream possibly meant to me. I realized the dream was speaking to me, about me, about my life. The dream revealed that sometimes in life, we may be on a path and get knocked off course because of an unexpected shift.
So what do you do when an unexpected shift occurs? You assess the situation. Ask yourself, why did the shift occur in the first place? Could you have prevented the shift? How do you successfully resume your course once the shift occurs? Asking the right questions won’t take you back in time before the shift, but it will prepare you for future shifts up ahead. The important thing to remember is that shifts will happen in life. When they do you may even run off course but it’s not the end of the road. When you encounter an unexpected shift in life, find your way back onto the road to keep moving forward.
