Life is all about how you handle Plan B

Plan A is always the first choice.  You know, the one where everything works out to be happily ever after.  But more often than not, I find myself dealing with the upside-down, inside-out version where nothing goes as it should.  It’s at this point where my character comes in.

Do I sink or do I swim?  Do I wallow in self-pity and play victim, or do I shift gears and make the best of the situation?  The choice is mine.  And when this happens to you, the choice is yours.

After all … life is all about how you handle Plan B.

*  F. Gordon Crosby created the original Winged B – with the ‘B’ of Bentley inside a pair of wings chosen to represent the exhilaration of motion – and perhaps also a reference to W.O. Bentley’s background as a designer of engines for fighter planes in the First World War.

To celebrate 100 years of Bentley, a version of the Winged B was created exclusively for cars built during the Centenary year. The Bentley ‘B’ and the oval around it were outlined in a special metallic finish named Centenary Gold, and the dates 1919 and 2019 added either side of the ‘B’ – a fitting tribute to Crosby in a year that also marked a century since his original design.
