I like to plan things down to the finest detail - not allowing for any surprises, not allowing for the unexpected, being assured of success at all times. The walk we did on the Camino gave me a whole lot of perspective on all of that.
Yes I planned our walk down to the finest detail and I have no regrets about that, but life threw us a bunch of curve balls too and I learnt to shrug my shoulders and keep plodding. I realised that I actually can't control the universe (who knew?! 😏) and the best I can do is plan, hope for the best, and keep working towards my goal, one step at a time.
Ultimately it all works out, I might pick up some bumps and bruises and learn a lot of important lessons on the way, but it's all part of the experience.
