I planned for it to be about our love of inanimate objects.
I was going to post a picture of it and the beautiful chocolate chip heart cookies that I made. But things didn't work out the way I planned. The chocolate chip cookies that I tried to make into cutout cookies didn't work out. They looked like flat over cooked chocolate chip cookies. They certainly didn't hold their heart shape.
Usually my response would be frustration.
But this time I wasn't either. Instead of getting aggravated, I ate a few;
which were still yummy.
Then I moved on.
We make plans. We think we know what the future holds.
But then something happens, whether good or bad and our masterful plan is ca put! Ruined. Or simply just changed. The problem I have found is that when I was younger if a plan went ca put, I just made a new plan. But as an adult, I have stopped making plans. I am not talking about what to eat or plans for a vacation. I am talking about life plans, parenting plans, financial plans.
I planned to only live in this house for a few year. We have been here for 12 1/2 years.
I planned to stay home when I had kids, but have been working outside the home for 8 years.
I planned to not yell like my mother. I yell.
I planned to be financially secure. I have debt coming out of my eyeballs.
It all just happened and I didn't move on and make a new plan. I just muddled along.
But that is all going to change. I am going to start making plans. I am going to attempt to stick to it. But most of all, if the plan doesn't work out, I am going to make a new one. Because you generally don't get anywhere without a plan.
