Life isn’t linear. It zigs when we think it’s going to zag. It dips when we think it’s all going up. 

If I’ve learned anything over the course of my life is to accept uncertainty and surprise. 

We can plan for many life events, but there are some that just hit you without any forethought. 

Those are usually events that take place in a blind spot of yours, a blindspot that you may not even know, existed. 

The best thing we can do in these situations is to accept the reality of the situation, make a plan to address it, and move forward.
