We’ve all had a Plan A. It starts out in what we think is something we want and goes from there. However, Plan A doesn’t always work out, then what? We make another plan, and another hoping that at some point the right plan will come along and everything will work out.

So what makes up a plan? What makes a plan work? Simple answer? You. A plan doesn’t exist without you. So who’s to say you need to keep going through plan after plan that doesn’t seem to work? If it’s your plan, you have the right to change it. Things happen, people change, so change the plan along with it. Adapt. And just because you have a plan, whether it’s about your career goals, personal goals, or love life remember that the only one besides you that has a say in the outcome is God.

And if you’re not on track with Him…chances are the plans you have are not right for you anyway.


Decisions January 9, 2013

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately regarding this dating thing. It seems like every time I turn around something just goes in the wrong direction. I feel like I’m putting myself out there but in ways have not really done so. For instance, tonight I’m cuddled up under my Ariat blanket, watching  The People’s Choice Awards while blogging. Exciting right?

No? Yeah, that’s kind of what I thought. Considering it’s past my normal bedtime it is pretty exciting. Well, kinda. I have the day off tomorrow and my hopes of sleeping in only really means getting up at 7am instead of 3am. I remember when I use to be able to sleep in past noon. Gone are those days! Must be the exciting start to being 30.

You’d think at 30, I’d need more sleep. Not true! So far at least, but things could change. Plus there is always my wonderful addiction to caffeine. Starbucks, I both love and dislike you at the same time.

Back to the subject at hand. Decisions. In reviewing this past year I have realized that in my pursuit of a relationship I have let life get away from me. It seems to be this rut I get stuck in while in this town.

So I’m completely letting go of trying to control things. Stepping up by getting the things I want to do in my life done. Best way to do that is delete some profiles that have been sticking around way to long. Iphone app? Gone! It’s a cleansing 2013 off with a bang!

Doesn’t mean that I still won’t have some great stories from things that have already happened as well as more dating to come. Confidence building to commence. Let’s get this new year started!
