Two weeks ago, the weather here in Manila wasn't as chilly as it is today. Call me a girl from the tropics for thinking this weather counts as "chilly" (I can hear my Canadian cousins laughing from miles away), but it is. After this weekend, I've tucked away my cropped tops and switched out my shorts with jeans. As much as I would have loved to prance around in casual cropped tops and shorts, I simply had to adapt or it would be cold as fuck.
As with some instances with life, there are things we cannot control. We set ourselves towards a goal, and we think that we all have it figured out when it comes to fulfilling that goal. But life throws us a challenge and we take a different route. Although still with our eyes on the goal, now we're just scrambling to figure out a new way towards it.
"Be clear about your goal, but be flexible about the process of achieving it" -Brian Tracy
The main thing is that you never lose sight of what you initially set out to do, especially if this is of importance to you. Sometimes, we may get sidetracked, pulled back, or put on hold, but always remember that most of the control is in your hands. You can give up or find a way around it. Be flexible about the process.
