You Can’t Make a Plan on “What If”

You can’t plan your life on “what if’s“.

This is the first time in my life that I’m looking out and planning my life for me.

If you are in a committed relationship, there are always compromises.  As it should be.  I get that.  But I have spent way too much of my life focusing on the what if’s.  I’ll give you some examples so that you understand what I mean.

“I’d like to move from this side of the country to that side of the country.  But what if I met someone here?  Would I still move?”

“I’d like to own my own home so I can plan my retirement.  But what if I met someone and wanted to start a relationship with them?   Should I buy a house, being a single woman?”

It took me much too long to realize what I was doing.  I’ve been single and independent almost a decade now.  It has been a Huge adjustment for me.  I never dreamed that I would be single for this long.  I had Always been in a relationship and always thought I needed to be in one.

It dawned on me one day that I was putting my life on hold because, “what if“?

You can’t plan a life on “what if’s“!

Thanks for joining me on this journey! Penny ❤
