Soccer and Broken Bones by Lehi, UT Dentists

IMG_7987Let’s face it – things never go just like we planned.   Whether it’s our career, mornings trying to get kids to school, some quiet time to relax, all that laundry piling up, even family time over Spring Break … things have a way of getting off track.

But I’ve been learning something really important lately: What goes wrong is as valuable to my life as what goes right. Don’t believe me?  Keep reading!

I am an avid school sport attender.  I go to every game, am cheering even when no else does, they even gave me a sweatshirt.  Friday evening my boys had a soccer game in Ogden, and my daughter had a class in Orem.  Both at 4:00.  We had to divide and conquer – so my husband headed to Ogden and I went to Orem, sad that I had to miss a game.

Dreaded Phone Call

About half way through the game my husband called.  First words out of his mouth,”You’re not going to be happy!”  He told me my son had broken his collarbone in the game and they were headed to the Emergency Room in Ogden.  What?!?  Of course, during the game I’m not attending.  So I hit the road to Ogden and got there right as the doctor was starting his exam.

Pretty straight forward.  Broken collarbone.  Will most likely need surgery.  Season is over for my son.  Definitely not what we all planned.  You can count on “unplanned” things happening on a regular basis. You already know this. It’s part of life.  And perhaps life would be quite boring if things were always perfect.

Unplanned Things = Good Opportunities

(adapted from Life Learning Today)

So what can we learn from my son’s accident?  I wasn’t sure there was anything to be learned, but for the sake of this blog post, I started thinking!

How Do We Handle Unplanned Things?

So fix what might need fixing, but realize things happen, sometimes they are supposed to happen and sometimes they just happen.  Either way there is always something to learn.  Even if it’s just how to laugh, love, learn, help each other, slow down and be grateful.   Remember:

What Can We Takeaway?

So on your journey, enjoy the roadblocks, the giant log on your path, the unpredicted snowstorm, the computer crash, the broken collarbone and all the other inconveniences big and small that come your way. Remember to keep asking the right questions and you can make the unplanned work in your favor:

As your Lehi, UT dentist, don’t stop planning or give up goals entirely, but embrace the unplanned events as much as the ones that go according to plan.

Love,

Dr. Michelle Jorgensen
