Sexy Advice: Either You Follow Someone Else's Plan or You Create Your Own

A few days ago I went to see "The Adjustment Bureau." It was a wonderful movie. It was a love story and a motivational story rolled into one. If you haven't seen it don't read any further. If you have let me know what you think at the end of this. 
A couple weeks ago the words "I love you" slipped out of my mouth for the first time. After saying it I wished I could have taken it back. Well, actually a lot of emotions ran through my mind because of the conversation. However, initially I wish I could have taken it back. It seemed right at the moment to say it, but the words that followed hurt. Therefore I questioned my words, actions, and the whole month of February. However, then I saw "The Adjustment Bureau."

In the movie this politician meets this woman. According to the Adjustment Bureau they were supposed to meet that one time. She was supposed to inspire him and then they'd forget all about each other. However, it did not happen that way. They bumped into each other several times after that. However, that wasn't a part of the plan written for them. Towards the middle the politician was told that messing up the plan would ruin both of their lives. She would mess up his concentration on politics and he would mess up her chances of becoming a famous dancer. 

We all create plans, but those of us that go to church knows there is a plan written out for us. So what do you pay attention to? I continually adjust this plan I've created for my career. As of this moment it involves me having a career far away from Houston, but it has not happened the way I wanted so far. Everyone who sees you struggling always brings up the bible. The bible says be patient and wait for God. Actually the bible tells you that you are not in control of your life at all. However, what plan does God really have and why would he or she keep you from your goal? After all, it hurts when others tell you that your plan is wrong. 

Those are questions that "The Adjustment Bureau" asked. At first the politician wanted to go about the plan, but then he realized there was no point in denying what his heart wanted. He continually asked the men following him why he should stay away from the woman, but they never gave him an answer. Then in the end he and the woman created their own plan together. 

I've fought so hard to keep the words "I love you" reserved for one special guy. I've also fought so hard to make my career happen the way I want. The "I love you" part wasn't a part of my plan, but society teaches us that you can't control how you feel. Society also tells us to settle for less than what we want, because chasing dreams is hard and can lead to a dead end for some. 

Well I say if you are patient you follow that plan that someone else has created for you, but if you are brave create your own plan. 

Another question... if you loved someone would you wait until they were ready to fully love you back? In the movie he broke her heart several times, but her feelings never changed. You don't have to comment. Just think about it.
