Drop the Plans

Oh boy, how long has it been? I definitely took a hiatus but I am back! I am back to posting once a week and am done taking 4 month long (yes FOUR month long) breaks!

Something that has been on my mind as of late is how often plans change. I spend so much of my time planning; planning my week out, planning my weekend, planning what my wedding will be like, planning what my life will be like when both my man and I are in our careers. And I love thinking of the future, but I don’t want to spend all of my time in my head day dreaming and planning for things that are far away. Cody and I had made plans to live in Seattle once he graduated from UW because we had planned on him getting a job here! Alas, he did not and will be flying away to Arizona in August to work with an amazing company while I stay here and finish school. Now that is a plan that definitely did not work out. But I am okay with that! When plans don’t work out, we are challenged and that’s when our dreams are really put to the test.

So lately, something that I have been doing is living in the moment. Appreciating the time that I get to spend with Cody in the next few months before we live apart, my last few quarters in school and how much I am learning, where I am at in my health and fitness journey, and much, much more. I don’t want to fast forward through my life trying to get to the future.

 

Live in the moment, appreciate what’s around you, and love yourself at every stage.

 

xoxo,
