Unexpected moments happen to everyone. There are unexpected positive and negative moments . All moments, however, are events that we do not plan … These moments make us stop in life and can be very frustrating.

Serenity and acceptance are the best reactions to unexpected moments, but is this how we react on impulse? Our most common reaction to life’s blows may be resistance, a tantrum, or even a few yells. It is vital to achieve serenity and acceptance … These ideas will take you to that relaxing place within you even when life hits you. With these rabbits everything will be better.


Creating a new plan requires flexibility.  Adapting to new situations is critical at unexpected times. Physical, emotional , spiritual and mental reactions depend on adaptation. Since nothing can change it, interpret sudden situations as something you’ve always hoped for. In fact, it invites the unexpected into your life. As one door closes, anticipate that another door or window will open …

Spur of the moment

Life gives us curveballs … Positive or negative, these moments provide a choice for which we were not prepared. Turn sudden situations into a welcome change. Also, give yourself time to decide. Hasty decision making is always detrimental, rush is always bad counselor!

The winning decision will take you down a different path .  The path is uncertain and we cannot change course. However, a positive outlook reduces the negative power that the sudden situation has brought you. A quick-thinking decision takes practice. Continual practice turns the unexpected experience into an automatic response.

Always forward

Following a path that you did not imagine is scary.  You hope to go in one direction, and a sudden event forces you to change it. After adaptation and impromptu decision making, move on. Create some plans around the sudden occurrence. Create additional ones in case another curveball appears … Be prepared to reach the goal and don’t let detours stop you.

However, your goals don’t change even though life does. These events came for a reason, so accept them. The sad part is when people view new events as failures. Just because life doesn’t go the way you planned it doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You will be successful, even if your initial plan was not the best idea. Life is guiding you towards the goal , and misinterpretation is the reason why so many back away instead of moving forward.

Backwards just to get momentum

To move forward, sometimes it is better to go back. Backing up seems like a humbling experience, but it isn’t. It allows you to look back and think differently, resulting in a recharged, thoughtful, and replenished person. Excellence in one industry will not transfer to a different industry without training and experience in the new field.

Examples of falling back are going back to school , taking a lower paying job, going back to your parents’ house after a romantic separation, or changing careers. Never see this as embarrassing or undeserving for you. Go ahead and forget the naysayers. Play your cards right and this strategy will push you beyond what is possible.


No one reaches the state of appreciation before meeting the other requirements.  The appreciation phase comes long after the final decision . You think again, wondering why this happened. It all makes sense when you think hard. Sadness, frustration, and anger diminish for comfort, acceptance, and understanding. The feeling of appreciation comes because you made it. The hard way was a preparation for the final goal and you were successful. Consider this the moment of clarity.

The blows of life can hurt you, but that damage must be converted into tau internal strength to move forward and enjoy life, although sometimes there are gray days.
