So it’s 12/13/14, and I’m loving the fact that today’s date are numbers that falls into a sequence pattern. I feel like today will be a good day. Honestly, I’ve been having a lot of wonderful days lately. Seriously! Through all of the bullish that life throws my way, I’ve been feeling so happy lately. I guess you can say I’ve really been enjoying my life at the moment. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I FINALLY realized you can’t control what happens in life.
I now understand the saying “When you make plans for your life, God laughs.” As I have mentioned previously, I’ve pretty much had my adult life planned since I was about 12 years old. I was going to an HBCU, then off to grad school, where I would meet my handsome husband, become a renown Clinical Psychologist, and then have 3 beautiful kids. But suddenly, my junior year at Dillard, I realized there was a flaw in my seemingly flawless plan. It was B O R I N G, and the same story of many others before me. The last thing I ever want to be is boring, or normal. So from that day forward I decided I was going to just embrace the journey of the life. The good and the bad.
So far, so good. For the first time in my life I truly don’t know how my story will end. I’m just enjoying how my story is evolving. I no longer have a 5 year detailed plan. Do I still have goals? Of course! However, I’m no longer putting pressure on myself to meet society’s deadlines. I have no desire to get married by 25 or have kids by 28, and that’s okay. Who knew that learning yourself would be so much fun?!
Moral of this very random story you ask? The only thing in life that should ever go in a sequence pattern are numbers, well..unless you want to be boring and normal.
