"And it came to me then...
That every plan,
Is a tiny prayer to Father Time."
-Death Cab for Cutie
Oh how true it is. I never really understood these lyrics when I fell in love with this song. I knew the words, but I never actually thought about them. This is only one of the many great lyrics of the song obviously, but I think there is no better way to open the song. These words are like a good slap in the face.
You really never know when things are going to change up. We plan everything, or we have made up plans for everything. If you think about it, most of them never come true. You can come up with tons of situations and solutions, but in the end, only one thing will actually happen. And when it does, and it's not something we wanted to happen, can we really complain? What good does it do? None really.
What I am getting at is that if things don't go according to plan, don't be so upset. You usually can't change it, so go with it and make the best of it. Never stop making your plans, but know that things will work out if you work with them :)
