When your belt comes loose…

So your band cancels on the morning of your wedding. It seems like the end of the world, but the energy of the replacement band allied to the determination of everyone in the room to have a good time means that the atmosphere is better than it would have ever been had the original band showed up.

Or you may take a wrong turn and to get back to the right road you take a new road and discover a new and beautiful view of a familiar place.

Or your belt comes loose on the opening show of a panto run. It could lead to embarrassing consequences but instead it’s handled well and creates some unintentional but brilliant comedy.

Setbacks will happen. They are often out of our control.

How we react to them isn’t though.
