Can I Plan for the Unexpected?

Life and the concept of the unexpected go hand-in-hand. No one can go through life without experiencing the unexpected moments in life. Similarly, no one can control the unexpected moments in life either.

Unfortunately, the answer to this question will always be no. Planning for the expected is, unfortunately, impossible. You can never know for sure what will happen in the future. While this may seem daunting, this fact of life does not have to be perceived in a negative way. In fact, there are many ways you can begin coping with the unexpected moments in life.

Think About the Good Qualities of the Unexpected

Unexpected situations in life do not have to be considered solely in a negative way. In fact, there are many unexpected situations in life that are fun and safe. Some of these include:

  • Surprise parties
  • Marriage proposals
  • Meeting new people you enjoy
  • Getting offered a promotion at work
  • Getting free samples of food

The unexpected quality of life always allows for new possibilities and room for growth. It allows you to make new friends, find new hobbies, try new foods, and learn more about the world around you. There are so many unexpected moments in life that are — and can be — good moments in your life that you do not have to fear. Considering all of these good unexpected moments can help you cope with this aspect of life.

Engage in Activities That Help You Remain Present

Worrying about the future, unexpected moments to come can keep you stuck in thoughts that are influenced by fear. Instead of always thinking about the future moments, remaining in the present moment can help you cope with the unexpected. To do this, you can engage in mindful activities such as:

  • Meditation
  • Deep breathing
  • Closing your eyes and listening to music
  • Tuning into how your body feels

By staying present, there is no need to worry about the present. Rather than being unprepared for what is to come, you are totally prepared because you accept each new moment as it comes without overthinking anything.

Unfortunately, you cannot plan for the unexpected. Instead, you can cope with this inevitable aspect of life. In order to begin doing this, you can practice thinking about the good qualities of the unexpected and engage in activities that help you remain present.
