On planning and making decisions

May he grant your heart’s desires and make all your plans succeed (Psalm 20:4) // Semoga Dia memberi kamu keinginanmu dan menjayakan segala rancanganmu (Mazmur 20:5)

I’m learning a big lesson about planning, having vision and making decisions for my life. It all started on 21 April, when I heard a message about how everyday of my life must contribute and be aligned towards this end goal, or vision, for my life.

This was interesting, because a couple of weeks before, I had decided that I was going to do anything and everything I wanted. I was going to live one day at a time, enjoying every minute of it. Where I was headed, I was the least concerned. And suddenly, this put the brakes on my life.

For a long time, I could never really answer the question, what do you want in life? I don’t think I have the answer still, but I never even had answers to questions like, “What kinda guy do you like?” They changed everytime and according to who asked them.

For a long time, I have always been ok with anything and everything. If you asked me if I was happy with this cake, I would say it’s ok. Never that it’s shit, or that it’s yummy, just always ok, with no opinions that would be deemed too extreme.

I’m glad that this is slowly changing. Take my current situation for example, where I’ve decided that enough is enough at my current flat and I’m moving out. I learnt to first make the decision to move out, list out my requirements (see image above), search for new accommodation – and guess what? I’ve found a place which is exactly on the list.
