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.
