Life is so weird….especially life in 2020…
Early in my 20s…it’d make me anxious if things didn’t go according to plan. I’d cling to the plan, and act like a toddler (if not outwardly, definitely inwardly) when things didn’t go how they were “supposed to go”.
I like to know what “the plan” is. I don’t like going into things blindly.
Somewhere, over time, I started to let go. If plans change, more often than not. . .I’m able to wing it. I think it was almost a coping mechanism. I couldn’t hold onto the stress of things not going my way, anymore.
So, I stopped making long term plans.
For my kids’ birthdays, I started planning last minute. And for most anything, it seems like my best plans always come together last minute, anyways.
When we started “planning” our road trip, I was so excited!! After years of not planning super far ahead, we had this plan of where we would go, and when we would be there. It was a general plan, but it was a plan that was starting to come together.
And then, 2020 happened. And I have to laugh. Because, like for everyone else this year. . .2020 has definitely not gone according to plan.
Through this year, I’ve been reminded of why exactly it is, I’m more of a “wing-it” girl.
The last couple of months have reminded me that not clinging to my plan, allows for God’s plan to unfold. And, His plan always ends up better than mine!!
