Expecting The Unexpected

This topic is very relevant for the current situation of our lives. We never expected that an invisible enemy can turn the world upside down. A virus, so little can make us to stay inside our house with our nose and mouth covered and change the whole lifestyle. Even with the modern science and technology in our hands, we feel helpless sometimes. So much for an unexpected event, isn’t it?

"To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect."- Oscar Wilde

In our lives, we can always expect the unexpected things to happen. It can be in the form of lifetime opportunities or life-changing events. Something positive which can uplift our lives or something so disastrous that may shake and tore us down. But what is important is to be prepared. A good captain always makes sure that he has a plan A for the expected things and a plan B for the unexpected events.

Being a nurse, my mind is automatically trained to expect the unexpected. Well, we are dealing with human lives in the hospital and we never know what will happen in the next second. It’s so uncertain!! On the spur of the moment, everything changes for good and whatever we do doesn’t matter. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t try the next time when something like that happens again. In fact, we try harder to make things right, learn our lessons from the past incidents and act accordingly to get a positive outcome.

By expecting the unexpected, we make sure that we keep our hopes up but we are also prepared for the unfortunate events. Like a good soldier, be diligent to accomplish the life’s tasks but also watch your back to hinder sudden death and to lose the battle as a consequence.
