Do you plan ahead or do you only act only when you face the situation?

Cross the Bridge When You Get There - That's my friend Vanny who didn't have a clue that I took a shot of him crossing the San Jaunico Brigdge in Tacloban City, Philippines

I'm the kind of person who plans a lot and that's why I become too worrisome it drives my boyfriend crazy sometimes. When things don't happen as planned I freak out and I can't think straight anymore so I tend to lose patience. I'd like to slowly change my attitude but not to be on the extreme end of what I am now. I also like to be random - crossing the bridge when I get there and then not freaking out, or maybe still do some planning plus a plan B, plan C, plan that will drive me crazy memorizing all those plans. I wish I could still think straight and be able to find alternatives when things don't happen the way I planned and when the situation presents itself. What do you think of this?

Hi there Karagala! I am also like that. I like planning ahead so that I wouldn't be confused on what to do next or the next step to take in whatever I am doing but I don't really get bothered when things don't go the way that I planned them to. I always face challenges and change with positive attitude since I know that it will greatly affect how I will handle things and how much I will influence other people around me. There are times when I can't handle things but that's the time for acceptance and for turning to others for help or assistance. And, when I feel like nothing is going right and I don't know what to do anymore, that's the time that I turn to God for strength, clarity of mind and His guidance.

I like to plan ahead, because at the end of the day you never know what's going to happen in your life so it's important to be able to prepare for things that you know is going to happen. I like to save money for things that are going to happen in the future. At the moment, I am saving up for a flat, and this means that I really do have to be careful about the amount that I spend; because literally one wrong move and it could mean that I have to wait a couple more months to have enough to buy the flat, so I am taking a lot of care at the moment.
