Becoming Series: Over Planning + Overthinking

Planning + Doing 

I am a planner. I like to sit down and plan things out. The problem I come across with planning is that I like to plan in detail. I like to plan every single detail to the point that the planning becomes a drawback. A major drawback. I get so caught up in the plan being perfect that I waste so much time that a lot of those things I planned never get done. If they do, it's not on time. I am learning to let go. I am learning that I can't control everything. I can't control traffic. My children. The weather. I can't control the outcome but I can control me.

I am in control of how I receive and react to things. So instead of spending time trying to plan to avoid things out of my control. I plan to control the things I can and let the rest happen. The worst feeling in the world is to worry about something to the point of not even trying. That was where overplanning and thinking constantly landed me. 

I am learning + growing from these mistakes. Plan less + do more.
