Reevaluating Life Plans

Twila

I am a woman who plans, schedules, and organizes to the point of exhaustion. Most of the goals I have set for myself have been completed except one. That one that has evaded my wishes is school.

I announced in a previous post that I would be taking a break from blogging while I return to school. Well, you can ignore that. My first day of school was supposed to be last Wednesday. I dropped my classes before that day rolled around as a result of a discussion I had with my husband about our future and what we want out of life. What we want is a bigger family and for me to be a stay-at-home mom. Now is not the right time for me to return to school. I would like to finish my degree once our kids are in school themselves and no longer need me 24/7. Who knows if I will be able to even do that. There could be something else lurking in the future waiting to pop up to yell, “I DON’T THINK SO!”

My point in telling you all this is that our lives are not always going to turn out the way we plan. Although this can be frustrating and probably even disappointing it will all be okay. I may be trying to convince myself with that last sentence. I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we need to ease up on ourselves enough to let those things happen. What is meant to be could be greater than anything you ever planned on.
