What to do When Things Don’t Quite go to Plan

What to do When Things Don't Quite go to Plan

I’m someone who likes to be organised, I just love a good plan. Whether that be a summer holiday to look forward to or simply a trip to the cinema at the weekend. For the past couple of years I have felt like I had some sort of larger goal I was working towards which lay in the future but right now I now feel a little unsure of the road ahead…

For those of you who read my 2015 round up post you might know that I am now living back at my family home. Six months after moving out and in with Adam and I’m now exactly back where I started. Granted, we took a bit of a leap of faith when we moved in together, we moved to a totally new town where neither of us knew anyone and both had a pretty lengthy commute to work everyday. It all got too much so we decided to take a step back and re-evaluate things. We knew we weren’t happy living there so decided to both head back home which is two hours apart from one another.

Because of this step back I now feel like for one of the first times in my life I’m left without a solid plan for the future, I mean ideally I don’t really want to be living with my parents for the rest of my life…

I’m kind of struggling with this transition at the moment so not sure how much valuable advice I can give but for now I’m really trying to see the positives in the situation and make the most of them. I mean, minimal outgoings on rent or bills means that I can save some money (America trip this year plz), I have more free time now I’m not commuting as far so I can see friends, work on my blog or go to the gym (no more excuses) and plus I guess there’s always the benefit of home cooked meals and having your laundry done for you…

I guess what I’m trying to say is that sometimes it’s okay not to have everything planned out, sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and see where life takes you.

Now just be sure to remind me of this next week when I freak out all over again…

  • I’m like you – I need a plan/goal! But, I just moved back in with my parents after finishing uni, and it’s good – it will honestly be OK, and although it must be tough moving away from your boyfriend – you can always include saving for a trip together in your goal I guess 🙂 Suitcase

    • It’s nice to know I’m not the only one!

      You’ve read my mind as that’s exactly what we plan to do! 🙂

      Thank you for reading and I hope everything goes well for you too!

    I always like to have a plan or a goal and get so freaked out when things don’t go to plan, but sometimes that’s just life. Sometimes things happen that scare us or that we hadn’t planned but I think it’s how you deal with that that matters. You’ll find your feet again soon, but for now just enjoy where you are because everything will work out 🙂
