Do you ever find your best laid plans changing? I do, all the time. But I keep moving forward.
I recently thought I might go one way in life/career, then I find myself at the crossroads deciding which road to follow next. Important step in the right direction is to keep moving forward no matter what road you take. You can always adjust your GPS to another route/road if necessary.
I love making plans for short and long term, but I realize they are not fixed and I choose what my next move is. Life is ever changing in all directions, be flexible in your plans too. Know that one day the rain may call off a well planned outdoor picnic and turn it into a indoor movie day/picnic. Know you have choice to choose your next move. Don’t fret. I know it’s so easy to fall into the “why me”? thinking but know you have a choice to choose joy and happiness at every turn.
Sure, plan away. But be flexible. And release your expectations of how you think something is going to turn out. Letting go of expectations is paramount to a happy and joyous life.

I no longer let myself get upset over the big plans and little plans I make in life, changing. I know it’s a fact of life and move with it. It’s a opportunity to make new plans and let go of expectations.
I wish you all the best.
Here is the USA we celebrate our countries independence on July 4th.
Also for me, we have quite a few family birthdays in July too.
I don’t normally take any long holidays during summertime. But short weekend trips to local places is fun. Even day trips to somewhere interesting and local is a fun summertime activity.

Closet Clean Out Summer Edition 2017
Each season of the year I clean out my closet, rearrange things and put together my favorite pieces in a capsule like wardrobe. This also keeps me from buying too many new things each season. Only a handful of items get added to my capsule wardrobe each season.
This time of year is a time to purge old, worn clothing and donate, donate, donate. I am a firm believer of donating my old cloths. If the item is very good condition or new, I sell them on thredUP.
Ah Summer! It’s here!
For the next season of life and environment, I want to plan my days to be productive but fun too. Get out enjoy the summertime weather and activities.
I still like to be productive during the summer months. Things like keeping a cleaning schedule going and reading a lot of good books too.
