There are very few things we can count on in life anymore… but we can always count on chaos! It will be there no matter how much we plan, practice or take care not to create. It may not be welcome but it will come to keep us on our toes and teach us how to deal with things in the future.
The funny thing is that chaos comes generally from out of nowhere. It’s a surprise! Maybe not a good one but still.. a surprise. And generally some good comes out of chaos. It may take a while to recognize what it is but there will always be something good. Maybe just solving the issues proves you are capable, that’s a plus!
And when it gets really, really bad, just remember all those Christmas lights you untangled a day before Christmas Eve last year! Sure they were burnt out after you got them untangled but the important thing is, you got them untangled!
So go ahead and put those fires out today, they will probably be back again tomorrow. Well, at least it keeps you busy! Just think of chaos like an old friend that comes often and generally stays too long.
How to celebrate – Look chaos in the eye and defeat it. Eat a good breakfast so you are prepared to meet chaos head on. Put together a chaos taming team.
