SIMPLE INSPIRATION: When life doesn't go as planned
As many dreamy-eyed teenagers, I had a plan for my life. It was detailed too, but I will spare you today. Let's just say that my life did not go as planned. Not even close... well some parts were close, but not close enough. The life events that steered me off course weren't all bad. Marriage wasn't in the plan. It didn't even make it to the notes page. And yet, I got married at 21. Other life events were devastating to my naive young self and when things didn't go according to my plan then I made poor decisions. I let it get me all upset and my decisions were rash. So, here I am at 32 where I planned on being when I was 25.
However, at 32, I accept myself and where my path has taken me. I am no longer upset about it. I still have dreams and plans, but am much more flexible. Learning to yell "Plot Twist!" and keep moving forward has been one of the greatest lessons I have ever learned in my life. The key being to keep moving forward.
