I am a planner. I love to plan out events, weekends, vacations… you name it. It is how it gets me through the hum drum of daily life. I get to work and I plan on what I am going to make for dinner and what I am going to do that night. I love countdowns. It has me set my heart on something to look forward to.
Now that doesn’t mean that I don’t get disappointed. I was planned on going to Greece this spring. It was the thing that was getting me through this project phase. It was something fun that Pricer and I were going to be able to experience together. But things get messy and the trip was canceled completely. What was I going to look forward to now? I’m still looking forward to getting to meet and visit Amanda in May… some 91 days from now. But I need more. I need to know we will have lots of fun things going on this year to look forward to.
I was feeling a little lost with the sudden change in events and the plan B coming into place and all the other things floating around in my head so the other night I insisted we did this:
We just started to rattle off things that we planning and hoping to do this year. Big plans. New goals. Dreams. Trips. Foolish hopes. Fun things. Promises. Silly things. Seeing these things will us develop plans to make them happen.
Some of the things we want to do will come true. And others won’t. But I’m learning that is okay because for everything I don’t do there on the blackboard, there are 2 other fun things that we did instead. It’s all about making it work and having fun.
What are your goals this year? What do you hope to do? What do you already have planned? Are you counting down until then? Please share them with me!
