When things don't work according to plan

I saw the following quote and I like it because to me, the message is that when the plans I have don't work or turn out unlike I may have planned, that doesn't automatically mean it's not going to work out. There may be other ways to do the same thing, or, maybe there is a better plan for me that I wasn't aware of, that stepping in one door led me to another.

In other words, when something doesn't work out, it's not the "end of the world." There are still SO many other options - oftentimes even better options than what I had in mind!

So let's learn to go with the flow and not freak out if and when things don't work out as we plan because, as the following saying goes, there are still 25 more letters in the alphabet!
