  • Ah, for me that reminds me of getting pregnant while I was on birth control and working on my masters degree and totally focusing on my career. But it made me realize what's really important and grounded me a lot. Glad it turned out that way!

  • I think its true. People make so many plans for the future but other things may get in the way. That's why I dont plan things, I just go with the flow. If I have an idea about something I go with it, I dont try to map out everything step by step becuz when I plan something it never turns out that way

  • I know personally that I had my whole life planned out from the time I was sixteen until I met my husband at twenty seven. All of those carefully thought out plans went by the wayside why I was busy becoming a wife and a mother. No matter how much you plan nothing is guaranteed and things are always subject to change.

  • It means you can be busy planning everything, thinking through everything and life will inevitably happen anyway.

  • It means you should be flexible and realize that even the best laid plans sometimes fall apart. You can get upset and pout about it or you can deal with it and move on.
