"The only thing that is constant is change."
When we are in one evolutionary stage, we cannot imagine outgrowing it, and once we've outgrown it and look back, we cannot imagine having been satisfied being there. We are so blind in some ways. We are not able to take change and progress into account when we think about our futures. We imagine ourselves just as we are, but ten years down the road.
     And it's not our fault that we can't anticipate how life will change us and grow us, but we need to remember that likely possibility when we try to lay down our future plans in permanent marker. When we finally get there, we may end up wanting something entirely different than whatever we were able to anticipate.

I plan for the future but allow for the possibility of a change in heart or a change in mind or a change in me.
