"It’s important to be open."
“Open to what?”
“Changes in your life, mainly. I’ve always been a planner. So it’s very difficult for me to handle things that don’t go as planned. But I’m learning to accept that unplanned events— even negative ones, can lead to positive changes.”
“What happened that you weren’t planning for?”
“Well, I didn’t marry the man I thought I was going to marry.”
“He cheated and had a kid. We had a house and everything. But you know what? That horrible event created a domino effect that brought me to New York, and introduced me to a new life, and a new group of friends that I never would have known otherwise.”
