Things don't always go the way we think they should. Sometimes things don't work out in our favor. We win some, and we definitely lose some. Life has an ebb and flow. Some of the best things that have happened in my life occurred when I least expected them. I found my infamous bachelorette pad, when my mother announced I would be moving out. I met my husband after a bad breakup. The list goes on and on. I've learned to appreciate the unexpected. Life's little surprises can be bittersweet, but sometimes they point us in the right direction. The unexpected jolts us. It gets our adrenaline running. It keeps us on our toes, and helps us appreciate when life goes right. It reminds us that we should expect the unexpected.
