When push comes to shove

Do you let life play out?
Do you face challenges head on?
Are you adaptable?

Being an expat you have to be all these thing but definitely adaptable! If not then you have to learn to be.

Living abroad comes with excitement and challenges. You need to go with the flow and let things play out.

For those of you who personally know me or for the readers getting to know me, this is not a easy task for me. I am a planner who loves to plan! Going with the flow is not my thing.

I plan Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years months out. Why, well yes I am a bit anal but also I love the festive season.

So how can I be more of a go with the flow type of person?
Is that in my nature?

Well for years I have planned but then we would move, change jobs or something unexpected would happen and then the plans are out the window.

When push comes to shove is it better to be a planner or a fly by the seat kinda person?

As you would of read in my recent NYC posts you would of seen that my hubby is the laid back one and I am the planner. Together it works well.

But I think it is time to take a page from hubby’s book and expect the unexpected. So how do I do that I ask myself.

Well here are some thoughts on how I am going to do just that.

– Plan fewer events on the weekend

– Dont plan more than 4 months out

– Leave time during the week for unexpected events

– Take opportunities given

– Go with the flow

So today marks my start of going with the flow, or trying to at least.

Where will it take me, only time will tell!
