Sometimes we get stuck in our own ways. We can become comfortable, predictable and complacent. And as a result we can lose our passion, drive and creativity. Sometimes we need to disrupt the routine. Whether it’s to test out another strategy, to take a break to find a fresh perspective, or to have the courage to do what we’ve always wanted, we can reignite our energy, innovation and positivity. Sometimes we need to reinvigorate ourselves and kick start our life when it gets a little too slow and familiar.
We might wake up one day and wonder how we ended up where we are. We might think about where we could have been. Sometimes we got busy. Other times we got complacent. And sometimes there isn’t a perfect medium. But we always have to do what we love, what we deserve and what’s best for us. That sometimes requires hard work. That sometimes means taking it easy. Sometimes we make mistakes and sometimes we have regrets. But no path is necessarily better than another. So instead of wondering about how we ended up where we are or thinking about where we could have ended up being, let’s focus on what we do have: the life ahead, to live as we please.
Surprises can spark a whole array of different emotions. Sometimes we find pleasure and love hidden in a surprise. Sometimes we’re speechless, shocked and dazed. Sometimes surprises leave us frustrated, frightened or upset. But surprises always keep us on our toes. Life would be insufferable and dull if we always knew what was going to happen. With surprises, we can’t become complacent. Whether we grab spontaneity by the hand or we stumble into an unexpected and perhaps undesirable situation, we can always embrace what is thrown at us. Surprises are blessings that life bestows on us. Surprises are life’s way of saying that life is meant to be lived.
