The Master Plan

I was always that young girl that had her life planned out since middle school… my master plan was (is) attend college, graduate in Journalism, move away to start my career in California, have my own show (1st Hispanic Oprah), get married at 30, travel around the world, and have children at 33…

Some of that is still part of my master plan, but I have come to realize that having a plan not always works.

You see as different life stages get close (graduation) I realize it’s not always easy to make a choice.

I am now bombarded with questions like…”What are you going to do after graduation?” Obviously the logic answer would be to find a job in my field but the truth is I do not know…

New life stages can be filled with fear and excitement, and as graduation approaches for some of us we have to find a way to answer to ourselves “What’s next?”

Perhaps it’s time again to sit down and make some changes to our master plan or simply just let life take its course…whatever your path is just make sure to keep your eyes on your prize (whatever that may be for you)

I came across this quote the other day, “Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions be louder than your words.” –Unknown

And I said hmmmmm “Let your dreams be bigger than your fears” and it hit me…People that let their dreams go because of fear never become successful because they live their everyday life with fear…(if that makes sense)

In conclusion, it is normal to feel fear for new life stages…its part of life’s game…even if you don’t follow your master plan always remember to do what feels right for yourself…make your heart happy 🙂
