Today's The Day

I need to stop being so careful.

Planning, watching and waiting for something to happen. Life doesn't work that way. Predictability is no fun either.

I have gotten to a point where I have stopped worrying about finding a significant other. Any day, or moment, could be the day. That means placing myself strategically in social situations, or venturing into online dating, is forcing chance.

I believe that for everything there is a season. It lies in the hands of the man upstairs, not me. It is difficult at times though, I am an impatient millennial.

But, I need to continue to believe that anything could happen at any given moment. The drive to the grocery store, taking out the trash or even jumping to report on the latest breaking news. Those don't require plans, they just happen.

I'm careful by nature. I like to be in control. Giving up that ability is a wrestling match I need to tap out from.

Today could be the day, tomorrow could be the day or next year from today could be the day. I don't know, but I need to continue to act like it is going to happen, because it will.

Today is the day, whether it happens when I want it to. Or not.
