I like to plan things. I feel most secure in a well laid out plan. It takes away the guess work and ensures I know what to expect. This is comforting to me. It’s also boring. In the past couple of years I have been able to step away from “having” to plan. I have become more comfortable with going with the flow and just letting things happen. I have even begun to enjoy it. But one thing I am not sure how to respond to anymore is when plans fall through.
In the past, if a plan fell through I would just make it happen some other way (it being the objective, whatever it is). This can be good. My bosses have definitely seemed to appreciate it. It means I get stuff done! But lately when a plan is in the works (specifically a personal plan) and then utterly falls apart, I feel as though I am at a complete loss for what to do. I can either plan around the thing that fell through or I can just let it be. But now when I plan around something that fell through I feel as though I am being a little ‘g’ god and making something happen that maybe wasn’t meant to be. But letting go of the objective is not an easy option for me either. Especially when it isn’t something I have to do but rather something I want to do.
So what to do? Please leave copious wise comments on this post to help me figure it out. Especially you Ten-weed. Your recent days of silence on my blog are over! Bwahahahahaha!
