Personally, the uncertainty of certain situations drives me insane. I consider myself a planner, so I like knowing how things are going to turn out. There's been times where I would sit down in my desk and just plan weeks in advance, it somehow put me at ease. When things worked the way I planned them to, I felt good. When things didn't, I felt out of control and anxious.
The funny things is, I know that I actually have no control whatsoever of how different events happen in my life. It's not up to me. I've lost the count of times that life just didn't happen according to "my plan." I'm not going to lie, I still love to plan things. It's something that I struggle with, but the unexpected things are sometimes the best.
Quick story, I recently got hired as a creative director for the children's ministry at my local church. At the moment, one of the most exciting aspects of my job was the stability, knowing that after graduation I was going to be employed. Something unexpected was the amazing relationships that resulted from me getting hired. The fun experiences and memories that I've been able to experience from getting hired to be part of an amazing team. I could't have planned that. I am loving this new season. I love my tribe, my community. I love that God has placed amazing people I can do life with.
