I Never Have a Back Up Plan

I never have plans to begin with.

Which I’m not sure is a good thing or a bad thing. I feel like if I categorize something as a “back up plan” that I am demoting the value of whatever that back up thing is. Or I’ll easily give up on what I am currently pursuing because the back up plan seems a lot easier. And back up plans usually are easier right? I just dive into things, bask in the experience, have as much fun as I can, and if things don’t work out, that’s okay. I’ll move on to whatever next thing I feel pursuing.

Without a plan or a map. Because I can carve my paths as I go.

It doesn’t sound like a very smart way to do things. But I’m not very smart to begin with anyway. And so far, it has worked well for me.
