life is what happens when your busy making plans

last night i caught the last 5 min of "how i met your mother" and in that time one of the characters made a comment that i just had to write down "LIFE IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR BUSY MAKING PLANS"
how true is that, i often think we over complicate life, and it doesn't need to be....{i'm a fine one to do that} so when i heard this comment it jumped out to me.....
so while were busy making plans remember to stop and enjoy life too!!!!! have a great weekend
and thank you all so much for your comments they make my day....

  1. I used to love that saying...had it posted on my closet door once. :))))))
    Enjoy your week!

  2. jen - makes you stop and think.....i often have sayings around my house at the moment on my little black board i have "eyes open wide" been totally challenged this year about not cluttering my life with lets say CRAP and i don't want to miss opportunities that come my way and have my eyes open wide lisa xx

  3. It's a good saying. I have to admit I love making plans, it's part of the fun of the experience for me, the whole buildup to whatever I'm planning, more so than the actual experience I've planned sometimes :)
    Oh well.
    Have a great weekend! x

  4. That is a great quote my dear!
    I have been trying to 'live in the moment' and 'concentrate on the now' lately. it's hard to calm your mind (I'm always thinking and planning) but I think it's good to practice. Thanks for this new quote I can try and practice :)
    Have a great weekend,

  5. Never a better reminder to stop and smell the roses. This saying resonates with me too.
    One of the things I love about having little kids is they force you to do this. Walking is slower, and they do this all the time. My kids always pick me flowers, and if there is a low hanging branch call it a tunnel, or secret garden. Life is always 'now' and an adventure.

  6. very very true.

    I try to make life what happens while working towards my plans, though...enjoy the journey, not just the destination.

  7. PS - that said, I do find I'm someone who does do better with a holiday to look forward to, so if the 'now' is so-so, I think of that beach or wherever.

  8. Love this quote! So so true..sometimes we just need to take a moment and take it all in, don't do that enough myself. Enjoy your weekend..xx

  9. But my plans are so clever??!! ha-ha

  10. Love it and oh so ture!
    Hope you're having a great weekend xx

  11. This is one of my favorite quotes... it's so true! We have to remember to sloooow down sometimes or life will just pass us by. That is such a wonderful photo also. So cool!

    Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
