Making Plans And Being Present

We all want certainty. We want to have everything planned out. We want to know what’s coming next, what things are going to be like, what we’re going to have and not have, etc.

We want certainty, because it makes us feel secure. We want life to be good and to not be too difficult. This all makes sense. But it’s not realistic. We can’t know all the variables.

We can make plans for the future, and we should. It usually makes a difference. In some cases, a big difference. But life exists only in the present.

Any number of things can happen next that are out of our control. So let’s make our plans, but let’s focus more on being present.
