When Plans Don't Push Through

In my family, it has always been a practice not to make any plans.  I don't know why but most of our don't push through.  It has not been intentional though.  Fortunately, there are a lot of good things that has happened without us planning any of it.

I'm the kind of person who still uses the traditional organizer or journal notebook where I list out my plans and tick them out once I complete them.  It gives me great pleasure whenever I slash out a completed tasks.  I feel that I have done something good that day.

Today, we were all supposed to go out for a family dinner.  My mom made me look for a restaurant that we haven't tried before.  But then, it was way past the time we were supposed to get ready and everyone seemed to have forgotten about it until it was too late already.

Whenever a plan doesn't push through, I get some kind of discomfort.  It was worse when I was younger. I would throw tantrums when what I was expecting to happen don't happen.  I think I have bought that attitude until now but the violent reaction now gone.

It's easier to accept that not all that you are supposed to do will happen.  There are a lot of disappointments in my life already that I have somehow gotten used to so many disappointment still coming my way.  There are still so many things on my list of things-to-do.

Fortunately, a lot of good things has happened to help me cope up with it.  As I look at where I am right now, I think I've got myself covered somehow.  But then, being contented don't stop me from making sure those plans push through somehow, even though it's not right now.


  1. We're the same. I love making lists and get a great feeling of satisfaction whenever they get marked out. =)
