I thought this was great when I saw it....
I posted it to a few friends and was surprised at the consistent response from them of, "If only it was that easy!"
I think it is. It is all in your attitude. You decide how much or little something that happens to you is going to impact your life. I am sure we all know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer or is facing a life threatening illness and it is the attitude that they have while battling these infirmities that makes all the difference in the world. So I say to you, consciously choose to yell "plot twist" and tackle the new challenge with vigor, wonder and excitement and see where it leads you. Somethings that you would never believe would actually work out for the best do.
Have fun, enjoy life, and happy writing.
