Going with the Flow

It's amazing how quickly things can change. Some things change due to the decisions you make and some things change without you even having a choice. Either way, I feel like it's always hard to deal with.

It's always strange to me to look back on my life and think about the way things could have been and how they actually turned out. Not saying things are for the worst by any means, just different than what I originally thought it might be like. I use to try to plan my life out in my mind when I was younger and no matter what, life always surprised me. There was always some twist I couldn't see coming or when I had thought I had prepared for the "worst case scenario" something different came out to slap me in the face.

I have come to realize that when it comes to life you have to just go with the flow. There will always be something unexpected to trip you up and you have to be able to change and adjust. Life goes on.

I think I have just come to a point in life where I have no idea what is going to happen next. I have no plan. I have no grand scheme. I only have a vague idea of what I want to happen in the future. This would have scared the shit out of me not too long ago, but for now I am embracing it in hopes that I will see things more clearly and be able to adjust a little better in the future.


  1. I totally hear ya. I am a planner and sometimes when 'the plan' changes it can be a good thing!!

  2. It's always so hard when your plans get changed. Hope you are doing well!

  3. I'm there too and I hate it. I used to live in that moment, loved that moment, preached that others should be there too. Now that I'm a boring mom in mom jeans, I want predictability.

    Oh well.

  4. Im hoping to come to that realization myself soon. I feel like I keep planning and planning and nothing ever turns out right. Then I get disappointed. Good for you!

  5. Being flexible is probably one of those essential keys to happiness in life!

  6. I am a planner through and through while my boyfriend lives by the go with the flow motto. We drive each other nuts, but we also even each other out a bit too!

  7. I totally agree. Let go and go with the flow.


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
