In the spirit of New Years resolutions I want to speak about this concept of planning ahead. We all do it. We create goals, we set expectations and we make schedules for ourselves, which is great don’t get me wrong. But what happens when things don’t go according to plan?
Last year, for example, I have set goals for the following one. I wanted to travel alot, become better physically and mentally, meet new people and so on. Some of my goals I’ve achived, others I didn’t and guess what? That’s okay. I won’t let my unaccomplished goals crush my spirit, if anything they will serve as an inspiration to try even harder to
achomplish myself in a year thats coming. What I am trying to say is; planning ahead is good, it helps us to get into the right mindset and it makes us feel safe and motivated. But if things don’t go as planned, we shouldn’t feel sad or depressed. Everything has it’s purpose in life and even the negtive things in life really do serve us immensely. We learn from them and we experience lessons that are in store for us. Lessons that we wouldn’t experience if everything went according to our plan. After all, we wouldn’t be able to cherish those beautiful things in life if there weren’t a few bad steps along the way, right?
When I thinks about it, it was the unplanned things in life that actually brought me love, new friendships, valuable experiences and overall happines. So, lets not be hard on oureselves the following year. Lets not stick blindly to some plan and feel burdened by all the expectations (ours or others). Lets let life, in it’s funny way, show us magical things that are waiting for us.
