A saying I most remember from the 80s TV series The A-Team. Every time another unlikely adventure had come to a good end it is what their leader, Hannibal, would say ~ cigar, big grin and all…
In life there are always plans we dream up, and make happen. Some plans work out great, while others may not work out quite the way we had in mind. And of those plans that work out differently, can roughly be divided into two groups: those that don’t work out at all, and those that in the end work out better than we could have ever thought!
The times when a plan we put into motion seems to get skewed, move sideways to the point where we almost give up on it, only to find that in the end the results are way better than what we set out to achieve ~ that is when the saying is still so true; ‘I love it when a plan comes together!’
The unexpected things that cross our paths and push the outcome in an ever more beneficial direction, can be things like finding yourself being at the right time at the right place. It can be a chance meeting, or perhaps a meeting that never happens because the person is indisposed.
And yet, miraculously it all works out in the end…
For me the most amazing times when a plan comes together, are the times when things ‘click’ on my personal path. Often without really planning for something, suddenly I find information coming my way from different sources that seems to dove-tail perfectly, and guides (or sometimes pushes) me into a direction I would not have gone without this happening to me.
It does’t necessarily bring new adventures onto my path, yet it always makes the adventures more beneficial, more fun!
When things like that happen it most definitely makes the journey more adventurous.
It does require a certain awareness, a way of staying in touch with the progress we are making while making our plans happen. First and foremost this is important to keep track, to know when we have reached our goals. Yet it is only through that awareness can we pick up on the subtle messages, the shifts in energy, that guide us to the most beneficial outcome ~ the very best way it can all come together.
Whether that is on our personal journey, or in a more mundane setting.
When that happens, be sure to tell yourself and the world with a big grin on your face: ‘I love it when a plan comes together!’
