I like plans. Carefully laid plans that go perfectly, um, planned.
I work hard at organizing my home, the budget, my blog, my life. I’m at Point A, I define Point B and take the best route there.
Lately, nothing has gone as planned. And I know that’s how life is at times.
But this time it’s different.
Africa happened and I changed, my life and plans right along with it.
I don’t even know what Point B is anymore. Our family is on an uncertain journey and I don’t know where it will lead.
This week, we’ve pushed aside our organized life and we’ve opened our hearts and future to the possibility to something we would have thought insane six months ago.
Getting to this point hasn’t been easy. I’ve fretted and worried money into reserve and now I just give it away. I’ve hoarded and decorated and and now I don’t care. I’ve tried to make sense of this new unexpected journey.
The other night as I soaked in the tub and tried to clear my mind, crowded with thoughts of an uncertain future, I heard these words:
enjoy the journey
Enjoy The Journey
ENJOY THE JOURNEY
Point A and B are destinations, it’s the getting there, the place in-between where we grow and live.
It was exactly what I needed to hear: enjoy the journey….
How about you? Are you at Point A or B or somewhere in between?
