We often over-analyze things and waste time in ‘Why this happened’. But the key lesson here is that the change has happened, so go with the flow and plan accordingly.

Who moved my cheese is an easy and complex story involving four imaginary friend, the mice who are ‘Sniff and ‘Scurry and the little people are ‘Hem and ‘Haw. The little people represent the hard and accessible parts of our lives regardless of race, gender or age. Sniff is a smart mouse who recognizes change early, and Scurry decides to take action about change. The four little characters lived in a land where they searched for cheese for survival and happiness. They had a daily routine where they would run through the maze in search of exceptional cheese. The two mice had restrained brains, but good instincts. They could sniff out the place and dig it hoping to find the cheese they liked so much. The little people had complex brains but full of emotions and beliefs which they used to find their peculiar cheese. Both mice and little people had a routine where they could wake up every morning and run, sniff and look for cheese. They finally found the cheese, but the two mice kept their daily routine looking for more and looking for any changes.
As I really began to analyze my life a little more I realized that I had more than one "Cheese" and all of my "Cheese's" have been moved, sometimes more than once.
