Yet another discovery

I work better with a plan. I know that sounds simple but you don't know the rest of the story.

I have always been a spontaneous person. Whenever anyone wanted to do something I was the one they called, and I was always game to go anywhere and try anything. Hubby and I just to wake up on Saturday and head off for the weekend without a thought or a real plan. Hell, I once drove from the Bay Area to Reno to get married on a dare!!! How insane is that. Yes, we were divorced 9 months later. But all my life that's how I viewed myself. I'm the spontaneous one. I'm the adventurous one. I'm the one willing to go anywhere, anytime, for any reason. That was me.

But recently, the last few years, things haven't been working as I planned. I would fail at my intentions to workout regularly. I would eat things I weren't supposed to eat. Things like that.

Then a couple of months ago, I started really, seriously making lists. I make lists of things to do. Goals I have. Plans I make. You name it I make a list for it. What a difference it has made. I believe that is why I have been doing so well lately. Things are really working and clicking. I love it. The only thing I haven't gotten into the list mode is my school work, and that's a bit of a mess.

I'm so glad to finally figure these things out. I just wonder when this happened. Where did that spontaneous person I used to be go??? Maybe I'll find her again one day......
