“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”
Ever sit down and write a mental “To do” list for your life? Are you the type of person that maps out every expectation you have for yourself years in advance? Do you envision where you see yourself, who you see yourself with, and how successful you will be? Before you get too wrapped up in making sure you cross everything off of that list, think to yourself how much time is spent mapping out that perfect life while you neglect the one happening right in front of you. Is the strategic planning really worth the stress and aggravation when you are not guaranteed that desired outcome? Life’s too short to be preoccupied with those things we cannot completely control. Do your best, live day by day, and keep a positive outlook. Once you free your mind to think of the endless “possibilities” rather than the “definite” outcomes you want for yourself, you will begin to enjoy life to the fullest.
