“Man plans, God Laughs”

I just love my major so much, Speech Communications, it's so amazing. You learn so much and you interact with your Professor all the time. It's so great. I can honestly say that I learn something all the time, no matter what I really learn. So today in my Health Communication/Special Topics class we were discussing with my Professor, Professor Mindel about how life really is. She told us about her daughter, for the 80th time, about how she has this master plan for school and trade school. We, as humans, all have this master plan to succeed but you never really know where the road we are on might actually take you. She told us about this quote that her father always told her, “Man plans, God Laughs”. I couldn’t help but think about it more and more.

Life doesn’t really turn out the way we plan for it to be. When I was younger, probably in high school, I had this big plan. Remember the questions “In five years, what will you be doing?” or “where do you see yourself in 5 years?” ‘Well…” and I would go into this long drawn out dream or story of how I wanted my life to be. Well I just realized two minutes ago that it’s not going to happen at all. I’ll be still in school another year, which push’s me back, then I’m not marrying the person who I said I was going to be married to and nor am in the right state of mind I thought I would be in either. This is crazy. Not that I hate my life, because I love every bit of it, the people I met, the people I’m friends with and the enemies that I’ve gained, lol. life for me could probably never be better. I just never thought it would turn out like this. So now what do I do?

I guess I can continue to plan, more and more each day. Who would’ve thought that my mother would’ve passed and who would have thought that I wouldn’t be friends with my friends from high school any more. Nobody would’ve thought anything, but I’m sure God would’ve already known. Lol it’s funny to me. When I first heard the quote I did laugh because I knew that it was the truest statement that I had heard all day. Lol… funny, funny, funny….

This is soo true. I've been noticing that more and more, because of me having a boyfriend and how my senior year is turing out to be. That is a great quote. Thanks for sharing it.
