Hey guys! Welcome back. There are times we all dream about our future. The life we will have, the family we will, the house we will have. We spend so much time planning for the future that sometimes we miss out on the things that are happening right now. There comes a point when you decide what you want to your life to look like. You have dreams and goals and hopefully plans and all of this is good. But are you putting too much pressure on the future?

I plan things all the time. I plan my day, my week, and even my month. I am a big planner and I have to have a schedule. I make strict to-do lists and stick to them no matter what. I know exactly what my day looks like before I get out of bed in the morning. I used to think this was an effective way to live my life, but maybe it isn’t. I have learned that I can’t plan everything. Sometimes things happen that I don’t, and can’t, anticipate. I can’t plan for the unfortunate mishaps that I experience sometimes. I don’t always remember everything and that throws my schedule for a loop. It’s unfortunate, but it happens. I cannot control everything.

I stress myself out over the future and it’s not even here yet. And when it is I realize that it’s not as bad as it seemed before. I have realized that I ruin my dreams by putting too much pressure on them. I overthink too much. I don’t let life happen nearly as much as I should. I try to control everything and it doesn’t always work.

If you feel the same way, take a step back and realize who you are. Remember what you are working for and why you are here. It’s not always easy to not be in control, but life doesn’t always work out the way you think it should. There is a bigger plan for you, one that you may not be aware of or even ready for just yet. It’s all abut timing and letting things take their course. Nothing is permanent and you shouldn’t try to make things last that just aren’t meant to be. It’s okay to grow and change. It’s a healthy part of life. It’s good to realize that you need to change and work on certain things.

You are on your own journey. It does not belong to anyone else. Don’t compare your life to anyone else’s because it’s not the same. No one is living the same life as someone else. Learn to love your life and who you are. That will make the transition into who you are going to be that much easier and better. Most importantly, don’t ever let someone tell you that you are moving too fast or too slow. You are going at your own pace and there is nothing wrong with that. It is not up to anyone but you.
