I'm an over-achiever, I tend to bite more than I can chew; that's especially true when I travel. Something gets in my head that makes me feel like I can do everything, no rest needed, and that all my plans will be perfectly executed. In some ways, I'm lying to myself because, deep down, I know that no plan is perfect and that you can't have it all. This trip to Sacramento reminded me of that.

There's such a thing as making too many plans for one particular scenario and probably the biggest awakening I had regarding this was acknowledging that I have to conform with checking off as many things in my bucket list as possible but not quite completing it, and that that's okay. If you're an over achiever, like me, this might sound familiar: you're a go-getter, a positive person, you think you can do it all, you think you're a superhero... Well, you're not and it's not a bad thing.

Too many plans means that there's not enough time to do them all, and I'm learning that those moments of doing nothing, of resting, of thinking, are really precious too. So, don't stress out if you can't fulfil everything on your bucket list, keeping some things unseen is a nice reason to go back to a situation, to a place, and discover more things. Don't try to eat the whole cake, enjoy the slices you get to have and save room for new flavours, later on.

// Tiendo a morder más de lo que puedo masticar, a intentar lograr todo; eso es especialmente cierto cuando viajo. Algo se mete en mi cabeza que me hace sentir que puedo hacer todo, sin descansos, y que mis planes serán ejecutados perfectamente. En cierta forma, me estoy mintiendo porque, en el fondo, sé que ningún plan es perfecto y que no puedes tenerlo todo. Este viaje a Sacramento me recordó eso.

Hacer demasiados planes para un escenario particular es posible y quizá el despertar más fuerte que tuve relacionado con esto fue darme cuenta que tengo que conformarme con tachar tantas cosas como sean posibles de mi lista de objetivos pero nunca lograr completarla, y que eso está bien. Si tú eres como yo, esto puede resultarte familiar: vas por tus objetivos, eres una persona positiva, crees que puedes hacerlo todo, crees que eres un superhéroe... Pues, no lo eres y eso no es algo malo.

Demasiados planes significa que no hay suficiente tiempo para hacerlos todos, y estoy aprendiendo que esos momentos de hacer nada, de descansar, de pensar, son realmente importantes también. Así que no hay que estrenarse si no podemos tachar todo de nuestra lista de pendientes, mantener algunas cosas sin ver es una buena razón para revisitar una situación, un lugar, para descubrir más cosas. No trates de comerte todo el pastel, disfruta las rebanadas que te tocan y deja espacio para nuevos sabores, más adelante.
