Embrace the Surprise.
We flirt with the illusion of control. We are married to our apps, smartphones, planners and best-laid plans in an attempt to ward off the unexpected. In the process, we often succeed in killing off the inspiration of adventure. What about the beauty of the unplanned experience? Instead of embracing the "little surprises of the universe," we often berate them as unwelcome visitors and curse their irritating existence.
Some of the best parts of life are UNPLANNED. Do you find yourself engaging stress when things don't go according to plan? Are you able to appreciate the excitement of the unexpected? When is the last time that you entertained the idea of an unplanned day?
Free yourself from the illusion of control. Awaken to the power and excitement of the unknown. Get in your car and simply drive...without a destination. Walk in a direction that you have never traveled. Take the long way home. Plan a Saturday or Sunday without any scheduled activities or appointments. Do you feel the stress growing? LET YOURSELF GO. Surrender to the unexpected and make room for the magic to emerge.
Success or sabotage? Is your life over-scheduled and your soul overwhelmed? What is the point of success if you cannot stop to enjoy it along the way?
Is this going to be an incredible day? Make room for the unexpected and see how incredible your day will be!
