Murphy’s Law states that if anything can go wrong, it will.  So how do you respond when it does go wrong?  The objective options are fairly limited and quite simple: 1) Stop at the indications of a challenge or barrier and accept your fate, or 2) learn and apply what you have learned to move again toward your originating purpose.

Why are we surprised and/or miffed when it doesn’t go perfectly?  Accept the challenge, make the informed decisions you want to make, accept adversity in it’s many forms, and live as you wish.  It requires effort to make it through the things that will go wrong.

“Think of those who, not by fault of inconsistency but by lack of effort, are too unstable to live as they wish, but only live as they have begun.”         —  Seneca —
