Spontaneous…open, natural, uninhibited.

Some like to divide people into those who are spontaneous and those who plan. As if we can all live in either of those two extremes at all times.

The more I insist on planning anything, the more I have to learn how to be spontaneous because there’s usually a hiccup and I have to adjust. On the flip side, if I only live spontaneously, I don’t have the beauty of anticipating something great because it just happens and it’s gone.

Over the years, I am so much more appreciative of being spontaneous. Of making an unexpected call, knocking on the door of a neighbor, taking a last minute trip. I find joy in what arises from those encounters because my mind is totally open and ready for anything.

Be spontaneous today, and see what happens.
