Unpredictable Events Can Be Good Too
I wish I had a more happy-go-lucky approach to life. I’ll work on it. Change is always possible.
It’s easy to get into a mindset that we need to control everything. But there has to be room for life to surprise us — surprises aren’t always bad.
We had friends over yesterday, enjoying the sunshine in a socially distanced way as per current guidelines. I was talking about my home-brewing and offered some bottles for our guests to take home. They asked if I had a bottle opener!
And so started a lovely unplanned extra hour of chat, sampling and sharing something I’d made, with friends. The kids surprised us too by happily playing longer than we expected.
Life can surprise us in a good way sometimes — we need to leave room for that to happen.
