Life IS what happens while you are busy making other plans. ~ John Lennon
That my friends becomes more and more true for me every day.
I had plans… big plans, HUGE PLANS… and then life happened.
Now I still have plans but they’re almost a complete polar opposite from what they started out to be.
My plan: I was going to kick ass at my mechanic apprenticeship.
My life: The hours were too long for me and my Wee… she missed me, she missed her house… The money was running short because the pay was small… and I was a bag of stress because my memory is failing me more and more as time passes….
There were also a million other little reasons why it just wasn’t working out as planned; but those are the big ones; the biggest being my daughter not being happy. She comes first.
So life happened. I left the place I was apprenticing at, I got in touch with some old employers, I got some ‘work’, and I found a new job. I start my new job on Monday and I’m very excited; straight days, 8 hour days, 5 days a week…. It’s a good fit. Once the babysitting situation straightens itself out, I’ll be all set!! Hopefully that falls into place this week.
Also… things are still going amazingly well with Jason; and he’s been very supportive through all of this… He’s been my rock in the rough waters of Life Happening.
So, the moral of this little story:
Just when you think it’s all going to shit just remember, life has a plan. You may not be expecting that plan, but it has a plan. And sometimes all you can do in life is ride out the storm and see what the plan is once the storm is over.
Just hold on tight… Life can be a crazy ride.
