Accidents, curveballs, lemons to lemonade, bombshell, off track, distracted all adjectives that describe the unexpected. For a person like myself, that is a planner, the unexpected upsets my apple cart.

I didn’t expect to fall in love and get married. Why? Because I feared heartbreak.

I didn’t expect to be successful, because all I ever knew was disappointment and broken promises.

I didn’t expect to be strong due to the weakness that saddles my back and is also known as my life-long battle with depression.

I didn’t expect to be loved by many because I never saw myself as God sees me.

I didn’t expect to give so much of myself to others because so much has been taken from me.

I’m learning to see the beauty in the unexpected and alter my expectations of life, living, and my pursuit of happiness.
