Plans Change

In this video, Donna Karan speaks about how her plans changed. She said that she wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, until a random situation led to her becoming the head of design for Anne Klein when she was just 25 years old.

I've heard it said, "Man plans. God laughs." 

Sometimes, we have it in our head how we would like things to play out in our lives, but, as I expressed yesterday, you aren't the driver. If you allow yourself to be open to different experiences and opportunities, although they don't align perfectly with your plans, you could find yourself pleasantly surprised by the trajectory it puts you on.

Have you had a situation where something worked out differently than you planned and ended up being a blessing in disguise?
