Mama turns 29 this week and as far as life plan goes, I'm exactly where I imagined I'd be: happily married, financially independent, homeowners with the pitter patter of little feet to etch the walls. It feels good to be here.
But the truth of it all is that I fully believe that I can still be fully happy had it not all quite work out as I planned. Such is life for you and how you cope with the disappointments of failed plans will define who you are as a person. I want you to aim high in your life, and in particular, to aim for the things that will make you truly happy, but to also understand that happiness can be sourced from many origins, including failed plans.
