Desiderata Days ~ Delight

March 29, 2010

The old saying “If you want to make God laugh, make plans” reveals how things don’t always go as we think they should. It is in our nature to be forward-thinking on some level. Delight in your accomplishments (and those of others!).

Max Ehrmann says:

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

As you make plans, remember they merely lay the groundwork for the action steps you will take. Whatever happens is the best possible option. The question is what will you do in response to it?

  1. The funny story here is the poem, Desiderata, was meant for Max’s Christmas card greeting…and look what happened!

    In making plans I “delight” in knowing they will NOT go as I planned.
