Ever since I can remember I have always been a ‘planner’, I’m one of those people that has my life planned out in lists, notes, timelines, checklists, and schedules. I like to have everything planned out in advance, I’ll research into every possibility before I make a move. I’m certainly not one of those people that can make plans last minute and just ‘go with it’. I hate it when plans change, when people cancel on me last minute, I stress, I worry, it’s like my brain can not cope with the change. I don’t know what to do with my life. How do I move on without crossing it off my list and go on with my day? What if we don’t have time to meet up again? What if we never get this chance ever again?
I’m also not very good at dealing with change, I stress, and I hate it. I used to try and avoid it at all costs. But, this past year I’ve had a lot of it and I have certainly learnt that things happen that are and will be out of my control. Things that I probably will never be expecting or prepared for and I just need to ‘deal with it’. If you haven’t already guessed I’m a ‘worrier’, I’ll overthink and worry about the smallest of things and stress myself out. The past couple of months I have certainly had those days where I literally just want to give up but, I have given it my very best to ‘handle it’ with my coffee in hand. And I am quite proud of myself for that. I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason.
