Last week, I wrote about planning for Plan A.
A few days later, Safiya Ah posted this powerful comment:
I woke up in the middle of the night with my laptop right beside me and this website was still up. Before reading this I thought I didn’t even have a clear plan B and absolutely no Plan A. I recently lost my job and have been in such a rut that I have forgotten all of my plans and for that matter how to dream. As I sat here it started slowly coming back to me. I remember a few months ago when I knew that I might lose my job. I told myself I would work on my body and start dancing again. I mean really dedicating myself. I also wanted to learn and compete in Latin ballroom. I even sought out a coach before I lost my job and lost my way. I miss dancing. But,I’ve never thought of my dancing as something to take seriously. Just more like a hobby. Earlier today I was offered an opportunity to dance again and basically turned it down. Making up excuses about being out of shape and yadda, yadda, bullcrap (crazy right). Today I intend to take this offer more seriously, give it closer look and real consideration.
Thank you, Safiya.
Her comment made me realize that it’s really tough to plan for Plan A when you’re not sure what it is, exactly. So, I’d like to hear from you.
What’s your Plan A?
You can be as brief or as detailed in the comments as you like. Just be sure you share it here, so that we can begin having some deeper conversations about how to turn your ideal life from a faraway dream to a more immediate reality.
