Sometimes the right set of circumstances means a change in plans. The key is in making it into an opportunity. For example, my inability to sleep in today turned into an unplanned trip to the gym. OK, lame example.
My wife is a master at this. I look at this fridge and say ‘we have no food.’ She looks at it and sees a great dinner for three.
It’s not about ‘making do.’ It’s seeing what you have and turning it into something. How do you do that?
