Being spontaneous does not come naturally to me, especially since I have two young kids. I like having a plan. I like being prepared. I like following a schedule. So, when I said, “Yes!” to a spontaneous trip to the beach, everyone was surprised (especially me).
Live in the moment. Let go. Get dirty. Get knocked over by waves. It’ll be okay. You know how I know? Because that day I laughed harder than I had in months.
Planning and preparation are good, but so is spontaneity. The reality is that I need a little bit of both in my life. I can’t plan everything and I can’t be prepared for everything. Even if I could, I don’t know if I’d want to because some of the most enjoyable and memorable moments are unplanned.
