Thought for the day from my SIL, Shelagh in Vermont: "I shall live badly if I do not write, and I shall write badly if I do not live." Francoise Sagan
I love spontaneity and recently have had several evenings and days out where nothing was planned but I had a great time. Don't get me wrong, I love things to look forward to, as well.
Having had a weekend mix of planned treats - singing in Truro cathedral and a gig in Penryn - I had a spontaneous evening on Saturday which resulted in listening to great music, and a day out on Sunday all the better for not being planned.
I have another review of dog friendly accommodation coming up in Bude next weekend, which I'm looking forward to, and a week near Penzance in March. Ideally, a balance of spontaneity and planned stuff is what I would aim for. But life is never perfect, and sometimes the unplanned isn't t always what we would wish for!
In the meantime, I aim to concentrate on looking forward to the good stuff. It's easy to anticipate what might go wrong, and waste a lot of time worrying about it. We all tend to do that a bit, but I try not to, too much. As my friend John said the other day, "If you can grab a bit of happiness, go for it".
