Fear of the unknown

We’re all afraid of the unknown. It’s our natural instinct – our body and our mind are trained to keep us safe, and therefore comfortable, so we cower away from what we don’t know. But imagine a life where we always know what’s coming next. Imagine a life where we can’t change the path we are on. Isn’t that more scary, a life without curiosity, surprise, excitement? Sure it’s daunting and life can be cruel and painful. But even those times make us stronger. The unknown gives life character. Let’s embrace and see where it takes us.

Thought of the Day: Surprise

Surprise quote

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.
