Hey, Beautiful!

Ahhhh, Halloween. What a day for having fun, dressing up, and eating way too much candy!

In Austria, Trick or Treating is not “standard” tradition – but it is becoming more widely accepted. Some of my neighbors had candy, and some didn’t bother to come to the door (just like in the States).

When I took my kids out for a round with their friends today, and I had to laugh at what┬ásome of the people gave out as treats because they wanted to be generous and help the kids celebrate, but they simply weren’t prepared!

We got everything from the breakfast croissant to the already opened chocolate bar (tee-hee-hee!). It was funny!

Where am I going with this? Well…

Sometimes you have to make due with what you have and partake in the festivities, even if you aren’t wholly prepared!

Life is like that!

There are times when you have everything together, and times when you wing it! The times when you improvise can show you so much about yourself – how well you handle diversity when it comes your way, how creative you can be, how you can roll with the times and look like you meant to do it that way!

So don’t fret the next time you are caught off guard or unprepared. Grab what you have and join the fun!
