We usually use the slang curve ball to represent something unexpected
either an event, occurrence, designed to deviate us from
a preordained plan or deceive or unpleasant surprise.
Life is rife with curve balls;
some of them we anticipate and have a plan for
Other curve balls we don’t see coming, but when they
come, we are equipped to handle because they are not that major.
Then you have the curve ball that spins you around, and threatens
to change everything in your life, and nothing could have prepared
you for it, neither do you have a blue print to handle it.
In those moments we discover what we are made of, those are the times
character shines, spirit grows, maturity reaches its peak.
Curve balls are a necessary part of life to move us from one dimension
of existence and knowledge to another. Without curve balls we wont
know just how far we can stretch, or how far we can go for someone else.
When life throws you a curve ball, you can either curve in the direction
it leads you or you can map out your own path. Straight lines don’t always test
our substance, we need the surprise of unexpected circumstances to feed
our core values, beliefs & grow our character. What have you done with
your curve balls so far, did you curve with it, or grow as a result of it?
When you know better, do better.
