Plans

     So I guess you could say I’m a planner. Speaking of plans here I am thinking about plans that didn’t happen, ones that are yet to happen, and ones that have already occurred. Sometimes I feel like I get stuck on that first one, and right now is one of those times. I thought by now so many things would have happened in my life, yet few have actually happened. Today has been like a valley that I have been unable to get out of, no matter how hard I try. In these moments I remind myself that you cannot always be on top of the mountain. If you stay on top of a mountain you can’t appreciate the climb and sometimes the climb makes the view at the top of the mountain all the worthwhile. 

    Oh the plans that have yet to happen. This one gets me too. Y’all I am a worrier, I like to know.  In these moments I remind myself of what has happened all the mountains and most of all the valleys I have made it through. I know everyone says this but worrying gets you nowhere because it truly doesn’t. His goodness is overwhelming, then I reminded I need not worry. 

     I am forever grateful of the plans that have already happened whether they were my own or not. They’ve got me where I am today and just wow. If you would have told my high school self that at 23 I would be where I am, I would have laughed. In high school I wasn’t the nicest person, was focused on the wrong things, and really had no sense of direction- in other words there was very little planning involved. Today I am grateful that I was that person because it got me to where I am today. Plans are meant to be changed, thought about, and appreciated.
