Most of the time I have an idea in my mind of the way I want something to go — an outing or a trip, for instance — but as I talked about in my post on back-up plans, other individuals are regularly involved so things don’t always turn out as I hope or expect.  So if a back-up plan is not in place, I find it helps to go into a situation with little or no expectations in order to avoid disappointment … or even embarrassment.  That way, whatever happens, happens.  And more often than not, I find myself pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

What’s your RX for going with the flow?
