It is funny how life will throw a curve ball. Your plans crushed. The bounce back, well it really depends on your perspective and ability to move forward. It’s life and it’s full of uncertainty but learn how to GIVE WAY…
I started planning my 40th birthday trip 9 months in advance. The plan was to have my closest female friends join me on a trip of relaxation some place warm. I first decided on St. Croix, I later changed it to St. Thomas because of proximity. I then had to change it because flights would not go down. And with the help of a friend Barbados was the final destination. And as you know hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria wrecked parts of the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and South weeks before my scheduled trip. The storms hit the Virgin Islands but Barbados was spared with only little damage. The forecast also called for rain the entire time but 4 of 5 days were sunny. It was a grand way to bring in 40 but more importantly I’m grateful to God for the way I was lead a different direction. Your plans may change, yield to what you can’t control…GIVE WAY.

Tip: We often get our underwear in a knot because things don’t go our way. Chill out, usually it’s God protection. Take a step back and look at the big picture, be grateful.
