Yes, have goals, dreams, plans, but these must include flexibility with no expectations. No expectations can open doors of unexpected good. No expectations does not mean you have no boundaries, no expectations means do not push a relationship or situation into a preconceived notion. Allow a situation or relationship to unfold naturally, drifting into the direction it needs to go in.
Life has many stepping stones and sometimes as we maneuver in the world, out heartfelt plan leads us to a bigger and better plan. The original plan was simply a stepping stone that lead you to something even greater. If you force the previous situation into something that it is not meant to be, you stop the process of the natural flow and you will be frozen in a place that does not best serve you or your partner, of your true desires or higher purpose. Many times you are blessed with what you need when you need it, along the way. You are blessed with beautiful and wonderful experiences to learn and grow from as you move forward in life.They were all that they were meant to be, just not long term, but still a beautiful experience that enhanced the lives of you both.
Persevere your dreams and see what choices are brought to your awareness. Tunnel vision of a dream will give you determination, but as you stay focused, don’t forget to allow yourself to enjoy the process!
