Cancelled Appointments

Some days are planned out completely around one important event. Your whole schedule is altered to make sure this one thing happens. It could be a meeting for work, a lunch appointment, a repairman coming over. Something you've been anticipating and need to see through. And typically these things go smoothly, everything goes as planned and you can breathe a sigh of relief when it's all done. However, there are those rare occurrences when your perfectly planned and scheduled appointments get cancelled. Perhaps you'll have a short, sudden moment of panic or frustration. You might even experience an inkling of disappointment. But even a cancelled appointment is a moment to see beautiful. "How?," you might ask. Just think of it this way: a cancelled appointment frees up a gap of time in your day. This time can be used for any number of things that bring you joy. It can be time to relax doing whatever calms you most. You could spend more time with your family or take your dog for a longer walk. It can be time for a nap, time to write, time to call a friend and catch up. Time to cook up something delicious or time to sit down and read a book.
Free time in a perfectly scheduled day is a great window for your choice of beauty to shine through. So don't fret or panic, and don't worry about wasted time. Take the time you would have spent being busy and make it beautiful!

  1. Totally agree. Especially the part about taking an extra long walk with the dog. hehhee

  2. Love this message -- it really is how you see it and a cancelled appointment becomes a beautiful opportunity.

  3. i concur. in our house, a cancelled appointment would mean a longer coffee break and more doggie time. win-win!

    All too often I rush through my life, trying to make appointments, or get from job to the other. It seems like there are never enough hours in the day. I agree a cx appt. is an opportunity in disguise!
