OAC 293 Puzzles, Plans and What?

I know you must be scratching your head over this title, but think about it.  Is life not like a puzzle and our plans always have pieces that we want to fit together? Like I had planned to do this show on Monday, but WHAT?  Something came...


I know you must be scratching your head over this title, but think about it.  Is life not like a puzzle and our plans always have pieces that we want to fit together?

Like I had planned to do this show on Monday, but WHAT?  Something came along that kept that from happening.  So do I give up for the week and say, 'hey I missed it, so never mind.'  Or do I just find another time slot.  You know the answer if you've listened or are reading my notes.

Anyways, today is all about helping you realize it is okay to have a Plan B because plans can suddenly have missing pieces.  A lot of people will tell you that you'll never get to your goal if you have a back up plan.  That that way of doing things is not showing confidence, that it keeps you from driving forward.

What?  I truly believe, that having security in one arena while you embrace something new helps keep you from a panic state.  Panic does not help you progress.  Plan B are your plans, puzzles are your life pieces...

 The key is for the audience never to know, so I have a plan B for every illusion.
--David Copperfield 

So give yourself permission to explore your passions and dreams and how you want them to fit into your plans.  But also, be flexible and know that puzzles often mislead you and the pieces may not be the right fit.  You accomplish your plan, but something isn't quite right.  Adjust to the gift that may be right in front of you.

Our journey on this earth is once around. embrace it with all you've got!  What?  Yes, what makes you smile, what brings joy to your heart?  That's your plan and may all the puzzle pieces be there and fit for you!

Passing On A Smile,
