There are only a handful readathons I participate in every year. The Bookie Trials is one of those readathons. One of my favourite bookTubers (Rachel Marie), created this readathon and after successfully reading through all the prompts last July, I can wholeheartedly say that I adore this one very much!
“Life happens while you’re busy making other plans.” It is a quote that I can only wholeheartedly agree with. Often, things don’t go the way you planned or expected them to go. Things happen sooner or later than expected, or maybe they don’t happen at all. Plans sometimes make way for disappointments, surprising twists or unusual plot twists. Also, in my life, I have had to deal with bears on the road and unplanned plan changes. Sometimes, those changes are beautiful, sometimes not at all.
How do you deal with things when things are different than expected?
