I read this on a blog today:
"Q: What was ONCE important to you but is not now?
A: Long term plans.
I used to have the next twenty years on my life mapped out in my mind. I guess that as life has changed I've learned that these plans really aren't as helpful as I once thought. Now I am just enjoying one thing at a time. I still have goals, but not as many plans... :) "
I can relate to her answer about long term plans. My life is different from what I had planned about ten years ago. The best things in my life are the things that I did not really plan. I am learning how we just cannot control certain things in our lives and working on "enjoying one thing at a time."
