You Can Plan The Plan

But Not The Outcome


Hello World πŸ€—

This morning I was talking to a friend about how when we make a plan, we tend to try to plan it all the way out to the end… and most of the time because of bumps along the way or because we change our minds…the outcome of the plan we made isn’t the same or turns out totally different then we planned it originally😱 

It made me think about the bus πŸ€”

When I first got the bus I really thought I knew exactly how I wanted the inside to be and since then have changed it a few times..😱 each time I’ve changed it, it’s turned out way better then my original plan, yet I still changed it from the original plan… πŸ™„πŸ€”

So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm πŸ€”

That’s what made me think of this poem… 

I picked the background for the same reason… 

If you look at the road in the picture it looks like the end goes down a hill… Yet does it? 

It could be straight…it could turn… or it could be a dead end! 

We can’t predict how the road goes.. and we don’t know until we get there…πŸ™„

Moral of this story… 

We can plan the plan yet we cannot plan the outcome… 

All we have is the here and now… and all we can do is take the steps that lead us to where we want to go… 

Yet we can’t ever assume or predict that our plan will turn out exactly how we planned it…πŸ˜‰

Live in the moment my friends cause we cannot predict what will be… We only have the here and now cause the future’s not ours to see πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—.. 

Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!”

Planning Can Be Stressful

And Overwhelming Too

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—πŸ€—

It’s really frustrating sometimes when you’re trying to plan things out and you feel like you’re going in circles cause you don’t really know where to start..πŸ€”πŸ™„

Since I got the bus and even before that, I’ve been saving all the places I want to see in my journey and OMG there’s over 205 places at National Parks, Forests and Monuments that I want to go to and that’s not counting all the people I want to see along the way 😱

So I started making a list of the places, where they are, what parks or forests they are in blah blah blah and omg I’m a confused mess hahahaha πŸ˜±πŸ€”πŸ™„

In Olympic National Park alone there’s like 35 places I want to see… 

So I need to make calls to the ranger stations to find out which campground is centrally located to see the most etc… 

Building the bus is easy… 

Figuring out where to start, where to camp etc is gonna be the death of me ha πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜±

Some just say wing it…

Which would be ok if I knew the areas or have been there before but NOOOOOOOO my Virgo ass wants things planned out… 😠😱😠 And I have all the van lifers and photographers that I follow on Instagram and YouTube to thank for my confusion aka @swagginscottricks the main culprit hahahaha… 

Stop posting all these beautiful places before my list gets out of control hahaha… 

Shit it already is out of control…

205 places?? Really??? 😱😱😱

Needless to say… Time to make a pros and cons list, do a little research and get organized cause my journey is right around the corner … Any suggestions are more than welcome hahahaha πŸ˜±πŸ€”πŸ™„

Don’t Confused Your Path With The Destination

You can plan the plan yet not the outcome

Hello World,

How many times have you made a plan from beginning to end only for it not to turn out the way you planned?

We can plan the plan yet we can’t plan the outcome. Life has lots of twists and turns and they usually happen when we least expect them too…

Don’t confused your plan with the destination cause life happens yet as long as you keep believing and you keep moving forward, even with the twists and turns you’ll reach your destination.

Keep moving, keep believing and don’t ever give up!!!

πŸ’«β€ Goodnight Universe β€πŸ’«
