Help! I Don't Have A Plan

With anything I've done I've never really had a plan. Apart from the routines I had to do like school and going to Sixth Form, anything after that I just seemed to wing it and go with the flow. I've only ever planned going to university and that failed massively. I don't know what it is with me, I'm just not a huge planner with job/career aspects in my life. 
Daily life, making lists, planning travels I'm there! I'm all about getting a pen to paper and planning my little heart out! 

Growing up, I was never a kid who knew what I wanted to do. Trust me, I've asked my mum multiply times. Not once did I tell her that I wanted to be firefighter or ballerina and even now at 25 I still don't think I've had the "I know what I want to be when I grow up" chat. 

I've always just seemed to go along with everything until recently, my current job will be coming to an end in the summer and it's got me thinking about what to do next. Granted it's January and I've only just started thought about this myself but lets rewind to last summer when I was only 4 months into my current role and I had my mum, dad, step mum, brother, sister in law heck my whole family tree asking me what I was going to do when this came to end! The answer I gave then is still the answer I'm giving now "I don't know" and I still don't! My question to you is, is that a bad thing? Should I have a plan or just see what happens? 
I've always been quite lucky in that I've just seemed to bounce from one job to another without any trouble but how far can my luck take me? 

I know there are things I would like to do like buy a house one day and travel a little bit more but that's as far as I go. I've never had a 5 year plan. I don't know what I want to do next week let alone in 5 years! So how can I choose a career for myself?

Do you guys know what you want to do? Have you ever known or are you like me? 

If I'm honestly I like the spontaneity, I like not planning certain aspects of my life, I really just like seeing what happens and going with it! Because what's the worst that can happen? I don't like it, it's not right me? Will I could be asking these same questions if I planned it, no? 

For me, it's okay to not have a plan and just wing it, sometimes these are the best times of your life. Planning works for some people but it doesn't work for me and I'm okay with that.

Do you have a plan or not?
