you only have one

via
 
Life

There is just something about it that seems hard to place your finger on
Something about it that seems so surreal

Just like we are people, on this earth
living our day to day lives

waiting

and

waiting

for the next step
for that next moment
or milestone that we can cross off our list

I often think what I want out of life
what I want to accomplish with the time I have here on this earth

I plan

and I plan for plans that may never happen

I plan to be married
I plan to have kids
I plan to be a successful nurse

I get hopeful when I think of the future
but bummed when things don't go my way

I have to realize that they are not my plans

nor do I have any control over them
He has my plans mapped out
He knows what I can and will cross off my list

So for now
I plan to be happy
content with who I am and what I have accomplished so far

Make people laugh
and love the life they are given

because

they will see how much I love mine

I think your plans for now are exactly what we all should plan on doing. God's plans are usually different and so much better than our own - remind myself of this often:)
Have a great weekend friend!
