I have a plan for most everything.
Small tasks like chores, work, errands and obligations.
Almost every little thing in my daily life has a plan.
Except for myself. Other than the daily grind planning of things to do, I don’t have a solid long-term plan. I have no emergency plan either.
Slowly I walk everyday toward the future without a plan.
The thought overwhelms me.
The practice of living well in the now suits me fine yet my thoughts leap ahead of me and that’s when I realize that I don’t have any concrete plans other than day to day plans.
I guess there are pros and cons to both sides. However, if there is one thing I’ve come to realize is that sometimes too much planning results in nothing.
While the more overwhelming things that do need some planning that I tend to let go of ends up finding a solution in itself.
So maybe it is good that I don’t have a plan for myself. It would be nice to be greeted with a pleasant surprise one day!
