In summary, my flight from Vancouver to Zurich was delayed for 4 hours. I was literally sitting in the plane immobile finishing up the second movie of what was to be a long journey of waiting. Because of this, my connecting flight to Barcelona had also been re-booked to leave 6 hours later than was planned. This, effectively, led me to miss the last train to Pamplona and so I had to spend a night in Barcelona.
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. — Joseph Campbell
Planning. It’s something we all do. What classes should we take next year? Where should we eat tonight? Where do I want to be 5 years down the road? This happens even subconsciously without us knowing it. Don’t get me wrong, planning is good. It gives life an order, a security, a direction. But sometimes we try to adhere to what we think we need to do so much that we become so narrow-sighted,missing out on all the other opportunities that are around us.
