Chapter 6: Disappointment



“He is the best man who, when making his plans, fears and reflects on everything that can happen to him, but in the moment of action is bold.”     Herodotus

Plans, we all have plans, I have plans.  But sometimes our plans aren’t worth the paper they are written on.  A good plan is flexible and there is enough give and take to see it through.  Herodotus knows this and basically you sometimes have to role with the punches. 

When I wrote this chapter I had some set backs in my plans.  It started when I finished writing More Questions, when I began trusting my instincts and myself again.  My plans were progressing well and I began feeling good about myself.  But I hit some bumps on the way and the plan of believing in myself started falling apart.  The plan and my feelings were coming undone.

Yet, when things happen that put you plans out of whack you roll with them and be flexible.  So I took bold action and revamped my plans.  The goals where the same but I would achieve them in a different way than I originally thought. 

In the sixth chapter, Disappointment, the Captain has trusted his judgment, been bold and moved on to make more plans to resolve the situation.  Everything is proceeding to plan when a small-unexpected hiccup occurs.  Action must be taken or else the plan will fall apart. 

I hope you enjoy the latest chapter of The Captain and The Baroness: Disappointment.
