I'm a planner, most of the time. At any given time (unless it's right after I wake up) I will have a thousand ideas and plans going through my head. In reality, only a few of those things ever happen, and some haven't had the chance yet. For an example, I have big plans to travel the world, all over, and eat new foods and meet new people. I have plans to open up my own coffee shop, or used bookstore, or yarn shop. Heck, I even have exercise plans (....ermm.... not too many of those plans actually get executed...).
But sometimes I take a break from hoping and dreaming that all of my big, ambitious dreams come true, and I allow myself to think in the moment, to randomly choose to knit something, or to draw or paint something. Because (brace yourself... I'm about to get deep) I find that if I plan too much I feel like there might come a time when I get disappointed, and I struggle with myself often about planning my whole life out instead of letting God take me where he plans. Now, I realize I'm only fourteen, and that that seems a bit extreme, planning out my life, but I am quite a dreamer, and I can't really help but look into the future and wonder what it holds for me.
I just wanted to make a short little post about this, because it is actually something very important to me. Always, always remember that not everything in your life has to be planned out. It's totally okay to have time when you have no idea what to do, no plans. I think that lots of times we look at our lives and think that if we don't have everything exactly where we want it, or when we want it, that we will fall apart. But if you plan too much, perhaps you might miss something even better that God has planned for you.
I know this is a tad out of character for my blog, it's missing my usual silliness and sarcasm, but I think this is something that everyone needs a little reminder of every once in a while. I love you all, my dear readers. :)
