Planning! Some people love to plan, and I am one of those people. I love to make a plan, to think about things before hand and leave out all the guesswork and stress that often accompanies me when I’m unprepared.
And while most of us know about planning trips, planning weddings and parties, and the other day to day activities we encounter, do we ever think about planning for our lives?
So What’s Your Plan?
Have you ever considered taking some time to think hard about who you are, where you are, and where you are heading? Believe me, this can be a difficult undertaking and can even be scary at times as we navigate relationships and important decisions, but the benefit of thinking about your actions and decisions beforehand has been invaluable in my own life and could benefit you as well!
Sometimes it’s the hard things in life that, once we do them, bring us the most reward. So what do you need to “plan” this week or this month? What areas of your life are you feeling lost, stressed, or discouraged in? What about the area of relationships and dating? Have you ever thought about relying on something other than your feelings to navigate your romantic relationships?
Maybe now is the perfect time to start!
The Relationships We Create
The relationships that we engage in and our decisions regarding issues like sex within those relationships are some of the most personal and life-altering decisions we can make! It only makes sense to think carefully about them, to ask for advice, to find good answers to your questions and concerns, and to make some decisions beforehand about how your relationship will operate.
One of the plans that friends and I at TurnTable have in regards to relationships is the decision to be abstinent. We’ve decided that for our romantic relationships before we are married, sex is going to be one of those decisions we say no to. Don’t be afraid to take a stand, to live with intention, and to say yes to waiting. The decisions made for your future well-being will always be ones you regret the least!
