Why You Should Make Other Plans
You know that saying, “life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans”?
I never really understood what that meant. I mean, I obviously understand what it means, but I never FULLY understood what it meant until life happened while I was busy making other plans.
As cliche as it is, it’s true. These last few weeks I’ve been MIA from blogging, but it’s not because I’ve fallen out of love with it. Sometimes you just need to take a break and recharge your batteries, and that’s exactly what I did.
Why do I think you should make other plans?
Well, take a look at all of the fun things I’ve done in the past few weeks, then get back to me.
I made my boyfriend a peanut butter cheesecake with an Oreo cookie crust for his birthday.
And yes, that’s a dark chocolate Batman symbol.
Yes, he’s Batman.
I got to visit this little munchkin when I did my taxes back at the beginning of April.
She’s growing up so quickly, and I hate being away from her and missing all of the exciting moments, but man, it’s worth every “no, Auntie Cassie” and “I need that now”.
I went to two Blue Jay’s games – one to celebrate and say goodbye to my good friend Mayla and her move to London, England, and the other with the boy, just cause it’s fun!
The boy and I took a roadtrip to Buffalo.
No particular reason, really, other than it was a nice day to go for a drive.
We rented a car, as one does when they decide to take a random trip, and just drove.
My movie collection grew exponentially due to a recent roommate swap.
When you and your boyfriend are avid movie watchers/collectors, you know your collection is gonna be legit.
PS. This isn’t even all of the movies.
There’s been a lot of IKEA trips in the past few weeks, and I’m sure there are many more to come.
I’m not allowed to enter the store by myself anymore.
Took a trip out to Niagara Falls to celebrate the boy’s friend’s birthday.
Eating dinner while being able to look out over the Falls is kind of magical, especially when the sun is setting and the lights behind the Falls are turning on.
I guess what I’m trying to say, is that in the past few months my outlook on a lot of things has changed.
I’m being more adventurous and spontaneous – random roadtrips, adventures, doing things I wouldn’t normally do..
Last summer, all I did was work work work to make money. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but, in the end, you can’t take money with you. And you never know what’s gonna happen.
Life is short.
You should make other plans and just watch it unfold in front of you.
It’s surprising to think about how stressed I used to get when things didn’t go as planned. Granted, yes, I still get a little stressed out about it. Does it bother me? Of course.
But I’ve learned to let the little things go and just enjoy the ride.
Stop trying to make life happen; it’ll happen.
