Unscripted

You know that saying about the best laid plans, right? Well if not, I’ll give you a recap. Plan all you want, but don’t expect life to read your script. Events – large and small – go the way they do, despite your preferences and best efforts. I mean, c’est la vie, right? It does what it wants.

That doesn’t mean the story that emerges isn’t a good one, though.

So yes, before you burn your agenda completely, planning does matter. Unless you’re independently wealthy and exceptionally full of chill, it’s a good idea to think about the future, and to take the appropriate steps to make the things you want happen.

May this next year bring even more adventure, music, beauty, quickened heartbeats and moments of pure, perfect stillness that remind you that you are everything you need, and everything the world is asking for.
