Mentsch tracht, Gott lacht-Man plans and G-d Laughs

I found this expression written by Michelle Citrin in a story she wrote for Jewels of Elul VI. She wrote this “In life, we will all face closed doors, disappointments and bumps in the road. this is a guaranteed inevitability that is beyond our control. But what we can control is what we do with this moments. Do we treat them as ends of the road? Or are they opportunities to take a new direction? Our dreams are here to guide us but we should leave space for those dreams to expand, for what’s in store for us, may be greater than anything imagined.” “Life is tough. You never know where the obstacle course will lead you and you can’t always map out your success.”

Some people plan all the time, and when their done planning, they plan even more! These folks are commonly referred to as Perfectionist! Is G-d laughing yet?
