This is something I find particularly difficult – letting go of my plans, giving up a measure of control. But life is more fun that way.
When was the last time you veered off a pre-planned course? Took a left turn instead of a right? Try not following the map for a change and see what happens.
“The fun stuff comes when someone is not so strict on sticking to the script. You’re allowed the spontaneity, and great moments can happen.”
“Humor is a spontaneous, wonderful bit of an outburst that just comes. It’s unbridled, it’s unplanned, it’s full of surprises.”
“Our spontaneous action is always best. You cannot, with your best deliberation and heed, come so close to any question as your spontaneous glance shall bring you.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Why not seize the pleasure at once? — How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!”
~Jane Austen, Emma
“If you wait to do everything until you’re sure it’s right, you’ll probably never do much of anything.”
