I often call myself “the girl with the plan”. I am detail oriented. I like to plan events. I like to think my attention to detail is was makes me a good administrative assistant. I am always trying to think a few steps ahead. I try to anticipate needs, and take care of things before they are a necessity.
I know exactly who I am. I know what I want, though I don’t always know how to get it which has led to some misguided, hair-brained ideas. This can be frustrating for someone like me who plans out everything down to their eyeshadow color for the day. I’ve heard it said “Fail to plan, then plan to fail.” This is all fine and good and true. Trouble is, often in life, few things go according to the plan. Things change. People change. You can’t really solve an equation where the variables are constantly changing.
So, make your plans. Just prepare yourself for things to change. Change is one of few certainties in life. It’s ok. Doesn’t mean that God isn’t in it. It just means He has something else in mind or it’s just not the right time. Believe in your dreams.
