i sat down today and was signing a piece of paper. 9/26. it is already the end of september. where did this year go? where have i been? haha can we slow down for one second?
i can remember sitting down in january and thinking i had 2011 allllll planned out. i was going to travel to far off destinations. i was going to live in my first apartment for a year with my best friend. i had it all figured out. then life happened. and it didn’t turn out according to plan.
i have learned you always need a plan b. and some of my plan b’s have been far better than plan a.
i had grand plans of going off to asia. on a solo adventure for the first time. i was ready. i wasn’t scared anymore. i was excited. but then life threw me a curve. i needed to keep my promise to myself and leave the country in 2011- so i jumped on the bandwagon of a trip with friends going to Canada (I mean it is technically another country…right?)
with the sadness still lingering from a family tragedy- and my plans of asia pushed back indefinitely. i had less than high hopes for my weekend in Canada. My plan B turned out to be one of my favorite life adventures i’ve had in my young 24 years. now it may have been the company i was surrounded with, or the endless beauty of vancouver BC, but i walked away refreshed and so content with life- asia could have never compared. my plan B turned into an amazing memory to last a life time.
that is just one example of my 2011 plan b’s. it’s just a plan b kinda year. and i’m learning that instead of being frustrated and feeling as though i’m settling with a plan b. to make the best of it. because you never know what you might miss if you aren’t ready.
so plan b. let’s be friends. i’m tried of fighting with you.
love, so over plan A
