Don’t Plan Everything!


I was thinking about the concept today of planning ahead. Why does everyone feel like they are in such a rush to get to the future and know ever detail of what that future will look like? What is the fun in that? If you never live in the moment, you’re not really living for anything. If you’re always planning for the future, what is your NOW looking like?

There was a Groupon that I stumbled upon a few days ago that caught my eye. It was called the Mystery Getaway. You pay your money (everything was included; flights, accommodation, and breakfast) but the catch was, you have no idea where you are going. Once you pay your money, you get an email saying where that flight is taking you. That idea sounds so amazing to me. Unfortunately, that Groupon is only valid from the Dublin Airport but it got me thinking: why plan everything? It can help in some situations of course, but I like the idea of spontaneity and the idea of the unknown.

I’m going to feel like a dork for bringing this up, but I was also thinking about the Mary Kate and Ashley Movie where they take a dart and throw it at a map, saying that wherever it lands they will go. I love that idea and plan on doing that! You can’t always be in your comfort zone and plan everything out! Live for the here and now and do whatever feels right. Whatever happens will happen. Don’t sweat it.
