Why it is OK if your plans change

Why it is OK if your plans change

Whether you’ve been planning something for days, months, or even years, it’s inevitable that plans change. In this post, I talk about why it’s okay if your plans change. 

Something better 

Sometimes plans change because there’s something better waiting to happen. Have faith in the journey and believe that everything happens for a reason. Even if it doesn’t feel good to you at the moment or if you’re disappointed in what has happened, just know that in the future you will be in a much better and happier place. It will get better. You just need to have trust in the process. 


If something has happened unexpectedly then ultimately, you’re growing from that experience. For example, if you planned to go to a certain university but your plans change, and you decide to take a different route, or maybe you change your plans, and you don’t want to go to university at all. Just know that whatever route you take or the options available after the change will help you grow. You will learn and grow from every experience. Try to see the good in the situation you’re being faced with. 

A whole new perspective 

If your plans have changed, then did it change your perspective? Sometimes our plans change, and we start gaining a whole new outlook on life. These moments are extremely special because you’ve grown. No one stays the same forever, we all go through life experiences which make us who we are. Along the road, our perspective changes and we grow as a person. And… if your perspective hasn’t changed then are you stuck in one position? Are you even growing? 


Have you learnt something extraordinary? Have you learnt a life lesson that you’re going to keep with you? How much have you learnt from changing your plans? Sometimes we have to change our plans to learn and grow. For example, if you imagined yourself in a job for 10 years but as soon as you started it, you hated the job, what are you going to do next? You’re most likely going to end up leaving that job before the 10 years. At that moment, you may learn that you dislike working in a certain sector, or you might even end up discovering yourself, or even end up finding your “dream job”. So, what I’m trying to say is that changing your plans isn’t always bad. There’s always a lot to learn, only if you’re willing to. 


This links to the one above but… you end up changing your plan for a better plan. Your new plan is probably going to take you where you’re supposed to be. Change is a sign of self-awareness. You just need to be optimistic. Optimistic that everything will turn out okay and you will be fine. Adapting and changing your goals is normal! It’s a healthy sign that you're open to change and growth. You figure out the things you like and dislike. You figure out your purpose in life. Most importantly, it’s a great adventure to have. 

Lastly, don’t be afraid of changing your plans. If you have a weekend free and don’t plan to do anything, then change your plan… go on a car ride or go travelling somewhere. Just don’t hold yourself up because you have a set “plan”. Instead, have fun and create beautiful memories to look back on. Let me know in the comments when you last changed your plans and how it made you feel. 

Thanks for reading!
Until next time, take care, and keep smiling.
