In life, there is always a saying, “this way or that way”. That means you have to fulfill your goal. First you may go to the straightway, if fail, or if you found the path is close, you have to find other way (off course not any wrong way).
When Shafeen (my son) got fever, I strictly said to him, “you can’t play on the floor”, because, cold floor may cause more damage on him. So, my son had to find his other way. He brought up all his favorite things (including his favorite chair) on the bed. I can’t see the condition of bed after that… but he got his good solution.
