I’m a Planner!!

Are you one of those people who has a five-year plan? This morning, I had to admit that I am. I know many people like to plan things; a day, a week, maybe even a vacation at some point later in the year; but how far away is too far to think ahead?

I always like to know how I want things to look down the road. It’s ok if things change, and the plan gets altered; just knowing that it is there helps me to be more relaxed and focused. And I’m talking WAY down the road. I have my two year goal or list, the five year ‘where I want to be’ and even a ten year set of activities that I want to take place, and having this ‘decided’ makes me feel better!

Case in point; this morning I was able to finally settle a matter that had been weighing on me as far as my schedule in Nov. of 2016. Yeah – that far away, but it bothered me that I could not get this nailed down. Fortunately, I received some vital input from another party; information that normally might have been heartbreaking. However, since the event that I have been worrying over is still going to take place, in 2017, I can let go of that worry and be at peace with it.

I have been teaching (long term subbing) at a school for one of my friends who had a baby this summer. This was NOT in my plan for this year, but now that I only have one more week, I am happy that I was able to be here for these kids when their regular teacher could not be. The extra income will be nice, even though being here has been a disruption. I had thought that this was the root of the ‘writer’s block’ that I had been experiencing with a particular story that I am working on.

Nope. As soon as I had my plans squared away, the floodgates opened, and I have written ten pages of new text in my journal for the story. Amazing! Gosh I love being a writer, and pouring all of my imagined adventures out for others to share. I can’t wait for you guys to read this one – oh, and you will probably need some tissues.
