#213: The Unexpected
"Embrace the unexpected"
On April 12-15, a month after I went to Florida to see a rocket launch that was scrubbed…. I went back to Florida to try and catch the launch on its new date. Last time I came home with a whole list of phrases to doodle, inspired by my trip.
This time, there was just one phrase… It came about because of a phrase I heard from several people, in all kinds of situations:
"This was so unexpected."
The more I heard those words, the more they percolated in the back of my mind until a new phrase appeared constantly, in any situation:
"Embrace the unexpected."
Make the most of whatever comes. Grab onto it. Run with it. It’s yours.
Sometimes this means grabbing on to something entirely wonderful that you just didn’t anticipate. Embrace it. Welcome it. Run with it. You get to influence the outcome if you actively participate.
Sometimes this means getting whatever you can out of something disappointing or upsetting that just blindsides you. Grab onto it. Salvage everything you can. Run with it. You get to influence the outcome if you actively participate.
So embrace the unknown. Make what you can with it. It’s yours!
So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.
This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3

IT’S EVERYTHING I EVER DREAMED
