March Madness - Day 4

Be Spontaneous! It can open your eyes to new things!

When was the last time you did something without a plan?

Sometimes our lives get so regimented that we run on auto pilot. I'm sure you've been there before.

  • It's the place where you get where you're going with no thought. You take the same route over and over and rarely deviate. 
  • It's the marriage where's you co-exist in the same house but it doesn't feel like home. You know what needs to get done and it happens, sometimes taking your spouse for granted. 
  • It's the parent who raises all of his/her children the same way. The parent fails to take into account that each child is an individual and may need something different. 

Auto pilot can be a good thing....at times. But only sometimes.

There is a whole world of experience and excitement that we miss out on when we fail to change things up.

If you're anything like me, you don't like change.

However, I'm learning that change is inevitable. Most importantly, there's so much life and opportunity waiting for you on the other end of change.

Over the past month, I have experienced a change in job, residence, and family circumstance. It's a lot of change all at one time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My mind is open like never before.

That's what happens when you decide to do something that is not all the way thought through.

YOU SHIFT!

I don't know how long we can pay to run two households.
I don't know how long we can all be apart from each other.
I don't know where I will live in 45 days.
I don't know where the kids will attend school next year.

All I know is that we are LIVING IN THE MOMENT....TODAY!

That's what spontaneity is all about.

What can you do today that's spontaneous?

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
