My Twentysomething Life

I Do, Make, Read, Watch, Eat…

Hello, my name is Lauren, and I’m a Planner

on September 20, 2013

whatplan  I am an obsessive, compulsive planner.  I always like to know what the plan is and I like to see it followed.  Not having plans stresses me out.  But plans also have a way of getting my hopes up.  I guess it is true that if you don’t have a plan then you can’t be let down or have the stress of the plan following through.  And even if you do have a plan that doesn’t actually mean that things are going to follow that plan.  I love plans, and yet as I think about it, I hate plans.

I like to have a plan so that I know where I’m going and when I’m going to get there.  There is security and hope in knowing when things are going to happen and being able to get ready for them.

But what happens to a planner when you can’t have a plan?

For me, I stop planning everything.  I have a bad habit that if I can’t plan one thing then I stop planning everything and I stop following through with the plans I already have.  Why have any plan if you can’t have all plans?

At this point in my life I know that I need to let my plans and expectations go because I don’t know when things are going to happen.  I also know that I need to rely on God’s timing and his plan.  I just wish that he could clue me in on that plan.

Do you have any advice for an obsessive planner with no plan?!
