Stop Watching Where You're Going

I had lunch with a good friend today and we were talking about complicated decisions we are either making or will have to make in the next few years. Big stuff, like purchasing houses, picking the city that house should be in, having babies, making money, you get the big picture. 

Of course, money is intertwined with all of these things to a severe degree...which I hate, but it is undeniable. Hillary and I are thinking about these things because we want to make the right decisions now...like should we say screw it and have the biggest, baddest honeymoon ever or reign it in and use that money to put us in a better situation when all those big life things above come a callin'. 

So back to lunch - my friend and I were talking and we both remembered how other big things used to be looming, like getting into college, getting a job, finding our awesome guys who at some points in both our lives, we wondered when and how the hell that was going to happen. But it did. And that is the conclusion we came to - The decisions we are making are big ones, but they will continue to be big question marks until they just aren't. Some catalyst will happen to push us one way or the other and then we'll know. 

So I'm going to try and be patient, which is hard for me, because I'm a planner and when you are being patient you can't plan. But here I go, living in the moment, taking it day by day and whatever other cliche you want to use.  It's always worked out in the past and I'll find out soon enough.
