Great post, thank you I have missed you and the activity from this team greatly.
PLAN B's. Yes it is very important to know and accept that mistakes will be made, and things out of our control will just happen to go wrong. Its frustrating, even infuriating at times. Some people ask "Well how the hades am I suppossed to go on, and where to...aftr that? Its not fair and Im sick and tired...etc" yes its important to know and accept that LIFE IS NOT FAIR. But to me thats only half the battle. OK things wil go wrong, life is not fair,...Ive stopped expecting it to be..but I still get disapointed and frustrated and tired.
So- Its important to have PLAN B's, C's D's E's...LOL Its important to have intrisic values, measurements, and methods, to soothe and rely on and not be so heavily dependant on that extrinsic what surrounds us. OK it didnt go right this time, Ill just tweak it a little and try again. Nothing worth having is easy...and Im worth the effort.
Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success. Planless gaol=a wish Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss. Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction. Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions. Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i ndividual.asp?gid=237 Starfleet BootCamp
I've always said it, "It's not what happens to you, but what you do with what happens to you!"
What do you do?

Roll With The Punches by Gary Vurnum ==============================
We all suffer setbacks…it's part of this challenge called'life'.
There are going to some days in your life that won't go to plan. Things won't work, events won't go your way, you'll run late, you'll feel shattered, every that can go wrong will go wrong!
Congratulations! You're human!
It's not what happens to you, but how you deal with it that affects your life. My problems may be a lot worse than yours but I may be a lot happier with my life than you.
Why is that?
Well, some people realize that there are going to be bad days - but they also know that a bad day doesn't make a bad life. They understand that life is a series of challenges that you either rise to or hide away from.
How to you choose to look at life?
Life is all about learning from your experiences. How could we know what success was without having short-term 'failure'to measure it against?
Just accept that things will happen…and that you will be able to learn from them…but only if you want to.

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
