A new year, a new plan.

In the words of John Lennon in a song to his son "life is what happens when you're busy making other plans". I have new plans for 2011 but I'm also keenly aware that sometime life happens, in spite of our best laid plans.

In 2010, I was working full time and making a decent living, I got laid off, spent some time unemployed, bought a photo studio and quickly realized I couldn't make it float, went back to being unemployed and then signed up for a truck driving school. I knew my job was coming to an end and had planned on that. Everything else, it was just life happening. I can't control life so I will do the best I can to ride it out and enjoy it.

I have many concerns about my new chosen career path. But, I know that life happens and no matter how hard I try to plan things out, I will never know how it will turn out.

bring on 2011, I'll face it with bravery and excitement.

  2. 01-01-11 A new beginning for many of us...a new dream, a new job, a new year. Enjoy it to the fullest.

  3. I suppose life would be totally boring if it always went according to plan. The best we can hope for is that it goes according to purpose - forget the plans - follow the compass. You may not get to a specific place, but you will certainly enjoy the ride!

  4. I've been waiting for life to go according to plan for 30 years so I hear ya Red!

    Good luck in 2011,
