When thinking about the future my mind tries to shoot to five years from now. Five years ago I recently became a mother. Five years ago I was living in my home state with minimal thoughts of moving. Five years ago I had a souped up two door Ford Focus that I thought was hot stuff. This has allowed me to come to a realization that you can never really know where you’ll be in the years to come. That does not mean that one should not make plans. However, you have to be open enough to understand that your plans are not always going to be your results. My favorite scripture is, “A man’s heart plans his ways but the Lord directs his steps.” This has helped me a great deal with having to face changes and challenges in my life. I recall planning my life after high school. I would go to college, meet my college sweetheart. Get married, buy a house, have 2.5 kids and a dog. Oh, how that has changed but I would have never imagined I would have accomplished as much as I have as a single parent. Even when I think about five years from now I get excited about the unknown of what is to come. Will I live in America in five years? Will I have more children? Will I be married? Will my blog have launched worldwide and become a household name? Who knows what will happen. Will I have perfected the positive thinking as I watched in the movie, “The Secret” (check it out it’s on Netflix). I will always make my plans but allow my steps to be led into the direction in which I should go. Life can change so fast and when it’s happening it feels like everything fits together. Each action is a puzzle piece slid side by side perfectly. That is usually how it works for me. At least that’s how I choose remember it. Because this is me. This is JustTree.
