Is it true… that we are never ready…never prepared???….Surely we can’t always be prepared for the unexpected…but…what about the expected???…Is it that the expected…is never really what we expected at all???

I wonder…If we can’t be prepared…no matter how much we plan …is being prepared… or…at least…trying to be prepared…the right thing to do???…Should a person spend time preparing for the expected when  often ..the unexpected occurs???

I… for one have often  found myself…thinking… I know what to expect…and finding out… it was not quite what I expected…I am sure many of you have been in that same place a few or more times in your lives…and…when we find ourselves in that place…we wonder… how did we overlook those unexpected things.???..How did we …not… know what to expect???…We were so prepared..or…were we???.

It got me wondering about dealing with the unexpected …that…often arrives with the expected…I suppose the unexpected …should be expected…right??? …And if that is so…then yes…the unexpected…actually becomes the expected !!!…I got thinking about dealing with those things we had not planned on…It is easy to deal with those things we can prepare ourselves for…but how about those we have not???…Can a person… prepare for the expected…unexpected events..moments..times..situations..details in our days???

I got wondering about how well I handle the unexpected…how effective have I been in dealing with it???…These moments can cause us stress we had not counted on…can cause our emotions to erupt…so I suppose HOW we handle them …will be the deciding factor in…how well we get through our days…Like driving a car…if your equipment is in order…if it has been serviced regularly…if it has a full fuel tank.. it is as best prepared as it can be…right???….However….once it is on the road….if the driver is prepared or not…will be the deciding factor in…how it gets through it’s travels…how a driver handles the …curves and bumps along the way…There are all levels of driving skills… on the road…just as there are all levels of preparedness… in life.

Can anyone … ever really be prepared…. for what they expect???
