The clouds were pitch black and collecting steam as they grew wider and taller at the same time. In the foreground golden leaves were perched upon tree limbs making the contrast quite startling. The feeling of knowing what Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz felt as she rushed home to beat the storm came into vision. Luckily I was in my driveway preparing for a jog up my road when wisdom shouted louder than my running legs and led me back inside the house. Disappointed I couldn’t exercise was nothing compared to the torrential rain and wind that soon lashed at my windows.

How many times in life or business do we get our hopes up only to have them dashed by something other than our own doings? We mostly feel we have 100% control over decisions, thoughts, actions, and elements, when really we don’t. As a longtime event planner I know one thing for sure, weather isn’t anything you can control so getting use to its wildness is all we can predict. The only thing we have control over is the way we accept disappointment.

“97% of the things you worry about don’t happen,” is a statistic I think about often when anxiety brews and bubbles up like yesterday’s storm clouds. When I’m disappointed in a planned event not happening, I also think of Scarlett O’Hara’s last line in the movie Gone with the Wind, “After all, tomorrow is another day.”

Standing at the end of my driveway 24-hours-later, the sky is as blue as she gets and the air free of any humidity or rain. Even though it was tough putting my energetic exercise mood on hold yesterday, it is raring to go today. When we find ourselves disappointed we must rest our minds and eager souls and think of Scarlett’s words understanding their truth to be real.

The next time your plans are postponed unexpectedly or you worry too much about something you planned not going right, I hope you consider my two favorite quotes and move on with the flow and confidence that all things come to pass, the skies lighten, the worry dissolves, and soon enough tomorrow will be here ready to greet you in all her sunshine and optimism.
