One short year ago my future looked different than it does now. I expected to be married with my two boys and his two girls, a crazy dog and two cats. That’s what today was supposed to look like for me a year ago. But life happens and the future changes and evolves to meet it. One future picture fades as another stands up to take it’s place, and on and on it goes.
I have found in life that when one future picture fades, it often leads me into a place of self discovery. With the fading of that last picture I discovered a new passion hidden within me for helping people realize their health and fitness goals as a Beachbody Coach. I absolutely love it! I don’t think I would have found it had that old picture stayed intact, because everything I was, was all wrapped up in the life I was living then. I wasn’t looking for new opportunities then.
Somewhere along the way I’ve heard the phrase, “If you want to hear God laugh, tell Him your plans.”
Dream anyway. Make your plans. Just don’t hold too tightly to them. No matter what the future holds or doesn’t hold, one thing has to be constant. You have to believe that God has it all in hand. That He knows what He’s doing, and that everything will work out just the way it’s supposed to.
What are your plans? Go ahead, tell me. Promise I won’t hold you to them!
