The title sounds contradictory AF right? Yeah, I know. Not only are we a few weeks into a new year (thank you Lord), this is also my birth month (talk about double reflection and goal-setting). I’m a January-Capricorn to my soul. I don’t read a daily horoscope, but when I do catch an article or 10 about my sign, I read them...and I fit all the characteristics. So in true Capricorn fashion, you know I’m planning, creating lists, setting goals and the like. My plans have a plan. And the second plan has a back-up plan. Lol
In all seriousness (actually, I was being serious about all those plans), growing older and life has also taught me to allow room for going with the flow…while having a plan. lol Again, sounds opposing right? Ha! I told you I’m a true Capricorn. My intentions are to look at my already written down goals and to smash them, while also allowing myself to flow in the direction that God is leading me to. Some people let life happen to them. They “wait and see” their entire lives for something to happen and it usually never does. On the other hand, some people map out their entire lives, never leaving room for spontaneity or change. If/When a detour comes, it’s usually difficult for people to adjust and flow into that detour. This resistance brings on anxiety, stress and sometimes depression.
I set my intention to be a hybrid of both: flowing and planning, planning and flowing.
You got to have a plan. Always have a plan. But, make room for the natural flow of life.
