Change of Plans

If everything in life went as planned life would be so much easier. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Life is so unpredictable.  That’s the thing that makes it beautiful. In the last post I talked about my new job at Taco Bell. Who would have known that within a week, I would be done with that job. I decided to resign because of the workload of my academics. I would have never thought that I would stop so early. That was not in my agenda. Continually my life changed drastically last year. I attended the International Baccalaureate program up until my junior year. I went through a rough past that was completely unexpected and out of my characte. Stress and illness lead me to leave the rigorous school. However, who would have known that it would have been the best decision for my life. I now attend a school that not only challeges me in a moderate way, bit allows me to have free time and college credits. I never planned that detour in my academic career. But for every door that closes another one opens. You just have to go with the flow.  Even the college that I chose wad out of plan. It definitely wasn’t my first choice. Nonetheless it ended up being the best choice. So what do you do when things don’t go as planned. Well fist things first don’t stress out. I know it’s easier said than done. But when you freak out it only makes matters worse. Worrying doesn’t change anything. Hence the phrase “don’t cry over spilled milk “. It’s so true. Next when things go out of plan resort to plan B. Everyone should always have a plan B. Thank God I applied to several different colleges. I was able to have a backup plan for my backup plan. Haha. Thirdly, it’s important to pray for guidance. Prayer and spirituality is always my advice for difficult situations. When you ask God to do his will you realize that the detour in your life was actually apart of God’s plan for you. It’s not always the easiest thing to do but it’s the best thing for you. We’ll that’s all I have for today. I hope I was able to help someone.

Sincerely,

Abisola
