Everything takes longer, is harder, costs more than we thought, and breaks at the worst times. Those are Murphy’s Laws.
Business is outstanding! We’re billing more than ever! Then, cash disappears, bills exceed income. This is perfect, honey! We’ll move by the time the baby’s here. The bottom falls out of the market, you owe more than you can get from the sale of your house.
Murphy’s Laws: Takes longer, is harder, costs more, breaks bad. What to do about it? l keep it light-hearted—Sh*t happens on the way to a perfect life!—as I remind myself that Murphy lurks. And because I remind myself, I’m more prepared to confront the calamities head-on!
If you plan for Murphy, sh*t still happens, but you deal with it. It’s not what happens to you, it’s how you react. It’s so often a choice and the choice is yours.
Murphy lives! Be forewarned! Forewarned is forearmed! Beware, Murphy lurks!
