Being Spontaneous

This is something I’m not very good at. I like to be organised; have everything planned out and scheduled “down to the T”. But life doesn’t work like I want it. I can try and box Reality into “Phil’s World”, but there will always be something else to do.

There’ll always be something we’d wished we’d said or done. We don’t want to live in regret, but we must acknowledge we can’t always do everything we want to. 

But every now and again, we can be spontaneous. We can choose to do something out of the ordinary and create a memory. I know I can easily slip into a mindset of going through the motions. I forget to appreciate the value of life and beauty of things around me. Sometimes we need to do something “extra-ordinary” in our own worlds to give us a little piece of perspective.

When was the last time you did something spontaneous? What spontaneous thing will you do today?
