Others have sort of said this in different ways but I think a critical part of being ready for whatever comes along is being able to quickly accept whatever has happened as real, and then proceeding accordingly. Grief, shock, and wishful thinking (that whatever has happened didn’t really happen or will fix itself) can paralyze you at a time when you need to be taking action. When your reality has changed, accept that it has happened and move forward quickly.
