When life throws you a curveball you can do one of several things.
1. Panic!!! A natural reaction but best controlled. Panicking just makes things worse. End of.
2. Slump into a depression. See above.
3. Take it as a spur to action. Whatever you do, doing something will make you feel better about it. More in control. If it turns out to be the wrong thing or ineffective then you have the chance to evaluate, stop and revise your action.
Whatever you do, do something.
These words are written to myself. Life has just thrown me one of those curveballs, as it does to all of us from time to time. It is time for me to take action. This post is a first, tiny step in doing so. Action does not have to be huge or dramatic to qualify. Action is just doing. Doing something, big or small.
Whatever you do, do something. It bears repeating.
Now, if anybody out there has a job they want to offer me or a lump sum of money that would be great too! Anybody?
Oh well. Failing that, I’ll just get on with my action plan.
