What screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of what it’s supposed to be – Socrates
We all have a picture in our heads of how we think our lives should go. With a positive attitude we plan it out perfectly in our minds, laying out what seems to us to be the ideal and perfect plan for our lives. We set goals toward it, we take action based on it, and we kneel down at night and ask in prayer for it to go the way we want it to go. And yet, the reality of the situation might be vastly different from what we’d imagined. The picture in our head is not necessarily the one that plays out in the real world. We need to face up to that and not get disappointed when we realize things did not go exactly as we had planned.
