Over prepare, Then Go With The Flow

January 12th, 2016 at 05:02 am

I saw this quote today. I've never seen it or noticed it before.


I am putting that quote up in my blog because I think that sums me up pretty well.

If nothing else, we were over prepared financially so dh's long-term unemployment has never been any big deal financially. So I think that sums up the last 13 years pretty darn well. But also I am surprised when people perceive me to be more Type A because I feel way more "go with the flow". I think the truth is that, with everything, I tend to just kind of land in the middle. I'll choose either extreme as necessary. The finances are where we always over plan and I really do think most everything else is very "go with the flow". I don't know that I have ever overly planned any big life decision. I take opportunities as they come and don't over-think the big things. We've actually made a lot of seemingly very rash life decisions because of our willingness to go with the flow. You will never be happy in this life if you can't go with the flow. Life always has other plans.

    Yes, I did this when organising B's 40th party! And also organising Christmas! I love apps that can help organise events, and I'm sure you can use this in other areas, not just event planning. (Your sidebar is a good example) Basically organise, plan, organise, plan, and then all of a sudden it's too late to organise or plan, but there's no need because you've done so much. All you need to do is relax and enjoy! (Or just enjoy. Sometimes there's no relaxing that can be done)

    I love this! I have been guilty of underpreparing and going with the flow, which I am sure does not work as well!

    I'm surprised you didn't come up with that yourself!

    Life is full of surprises and twists and unexpected turns. If you can't go with the flow, life's gonna be pretty tough.

    Great quote!
