“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens” –Mandy Hale
The above quote especially speaks to me as I find myself transitioning from one phase of life to another. As a woman who loves to plan out every single detail of her life, I found myself planning exactly what I want to do after graduation, where I want to be, etc. However, as time rolled by, I realized that my plan wasn’t really working out like I thought it would. Things just simply weren’t lining up for me like I hoped.
Just recently I had to let go of my plans and begin relying on the Master Plan for my life. This is challenging for me because I don’t really know what that plan is. I am forced to trust and have faith that everything is going to work out according to God’s plan for my life, not my own. You see, life is full of change and transitions that we all have experienced since birth. For example, as children we make the transition from little kid to teenager. It is quite an awkward and uncomfortable transition, however, it’s necessary. It’s not long before we reach this point of frustration and yell out the infamous words, “I’m not a little kid anymore!”. We mature, learn, and experience life through different eyes.
As a recent college graduate, I am experiencing yet again another transition. I am transitioning from being a college student to being a working adult. I am transitioning from being dependent to completely independent. This feeling is…awkward and uncomfortable because I do not know exactly what’s going to happen next and I’m not sure where my life is going. However, I have faith in a master plan that is set especially for me. I will lean not on my own understanding but trust that this part of my life will only last for a season and that I soon we be in a place where I am content. I encourage you to also find that peace in letting go of your own plans and trust that in the plan already set in place for you.
