The more you plan for things, the more disappointed you'll be when they fail. This is something I realized since parting with my bf while on this trip. We had a future planned, our next few years mapped out, and it ended, suddenly over pettiness. But you know what I realized? I wasn't upset about the loss of the relationship, I was butt hurt about all that I missed out on. All the experiences in LA I gave up, and all the plans we'd made. That's fucked up right? To be more upset about the things I missed out on then the end of the relationship?! But I'm human. I may be a yoga teacher and I may be more in tune with myself than most because of my last decade in recovery, but I'm just a human like the rest of you and my ego still rears its head. My plans sometimes control my actions. My stubbornness often makes me make decisions I know are counter intuitive to my instincts. That's part of the process of this thing we call life. We live, we love, and we learn. There should be no regrets as long as a lesson is learned; it's all part of the experience. What has life taught you recently? Let me know! I'd love to hear.
