P is for Plot Twists in Your Own Life #AtoZChallenge

I love encouraging others!

Since I love encouraging others so much, I’m sharing Creativity Memes for this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge. The quotes are from all over, but I took each photo with my iPhone. Here’s today’s featured letter:

P is for Plot Twists in Your Own Life

I’ve had quite a few plot twists in my own life lately, have you? Plot twists aren’t always bad things, they’re just surprising bumps in the road. For someone like me, who likes to plan out her creative projects, these unexpected challenges can be frustrating.

There’s a silver lining, though, because these plot twists remind me to focus on what’s most important in life and to let everything else drift away! I’m not saying it’s easy. My inner control freak doesn’t like it, that’s for sure. But… I am slowly getting better at the idea of surrendering to the unexpected in life and rolling with it. How about you?

Follow me on Instagram & I’ll follow you back!

If you are on Instagram, I’d be delighted to follow you. Simply follow my photo feed (@TuiSnider) on Instagram and I’ll follow you back! Isn’t Instagram fun? I’ve gone from turning up my nose at the idea of cell phone pictures, to being an avid iPhone photographer. I even had my first gallery show last summer!

What is the April A to Z Blog Challenge?

Each April, bloggers from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.

To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then visit as many other bloggers as you can. In addition to my personal blog here, I’m also writing A to Z posts for the the Story Dam writing community. You can check those out by clicking here: Story Dam’s Writing Quotes & Encouragement

  1. How great it would be if we all could think this way! I will remember this but I know when I will remember. After I have already reacted to the next plot twist in my life. Ah, love the idea!

  4. Plot twists – I’ve never thought of unexpected events in that light before. How perfectly logical for a writer, Tui.. Yes, I will apply that thinking from now on.
