Realizing that I have missed out on some things and have annoyed more than one friend or family member with my inability to commit I decided to try to do it different. So over the last year or so I have been making plans, buying concert tickets well in advance, planning vacations and actually buying the airline tickets, saying yes a week or more out for weekend plans. How has it worked out? Well, I have had times where I had to let go of something that came along that I couldn't do because of previous commitment. That has led me to work on letting go and focusing on what I am doing rather what I can't. It has also allowed me the luxury of looking forward to and anticipating a fun time coming up. Something that is missing when one makes last minute decisions.
The one thing that I have to work on is checking my calendar now before committing to something. There is the problem of double booking when you make future plans and this has happened more than a few times. A topic for a future blog. Enjoy!
