A popular line in a very old poem from 1785 by Robert Burns says:
'’The best-laid schemes of mice and men often go awry'’

For sure, there are times when life surprises us with something difficult or unpleasant to deal with.
The ‘Curved Balls’ of life often present themselves as a challenge or disruption. Just when we think things are working out, life surprises us with something that we may find difficult or unpleasant to deal with. Despite our best-laid plans, you and I will always come face to face with experiences that can tamper with our plans.
No one has immunity from ‘curved ball situations’ in life – every one of us will get our fair share of disappointments, delays, trips and falls etc that can cause us to PAUSE in life. Thankfully, a PAUSE is not a PERIOD – Yaaay!

How would you (should you) react?
