When plans change...
I was suppose to be in Nashville today. Exploring a new city with two of my very good friends. This was a trip I had been looking forward to for a while now and due to a number of life's fun little interruptions the trip was canceled. My friends and I had been talking/planning for the past 5 months or so. They were coming in from their respective states, I would be driving up from Florida. That was the plan anyway. But as we all know, plans sometimes change. Not because we want them to, but because they just do. Life happens. And in this case... a yucky sickness, two new jobs, as well as a moving house situation happened. We all had to make the hard decision for ourselves to call off the trip, but we also had to handle the situation of talking it through with each other which isn't a fun discussion to have.
A little backstory:
In my home group Tuesday we read and shared about intuition. I can tell you that over the last two weeks I've had a feeling about the trip. Not a bad one or anything, just a feeling that while it was something I wanted to do, that maybe it wasn't something I should do. I honestly fought that feeling hard. I feel like I did everything I could to make the trip happen the way I wanted it to, but when it came down to making the final call. I just knew. I still didn't enjoy closing the book on something I wanted, no matter how small, that is never a fun task. But even though I felt the disappointment that comes with things not going as planned, I also had a weird sense of relief. I felt like I made the right decision. It was a great lesson for me, to listen to my intuition.
