Learning Flexibility

If you were to look back upon your life and then trace the different pathways that your life has taken through different eras, it is an interesting journey. Isn't it? I was actually thinking about that subject this evening.

I am a planner and usually try to pre-plan for things in life by working toward goals, etc. But, there have been many things that happened in my life that I never could have pre-planned for or even imagined for that matter. Those things ended up playing big parts in my life. Some actually ended up being great blessings in my life!

I guess that is why it is always good to not be a "slave" to your plan but a "master" and remain flexible enough to chart a different course when necessary. It has taken me a while to realize that. I am not always the easiest person to get to change directions when I have my mind set on something. Sometimes it is easy to be blinded when you are focusing on a plan or goal and you tend to lose sight of the fact that sometimes your pre-set destination may not always be the best one for you in the long run! I guess it is called experience and learning flexibility.

I like your post. I can think in many things that I may do diferent, but I would not do it because I like where I am now, and changing the past changes the future.
Also, even in the most sour of my memories I can find somethign usefull that helped me to grow in any way and lead me to a more happy time.

I like a lot your new style, its very sharp, like futuristic :p

I love you my darling.
