The past few days have been stressful and a lot to take in. I am genuinely trying to “go with the flow”. What have I learned from this? I am wildly unprepared 90% of the time. I now have to get into the habit of grabbing more than my phone, wallet, and baby when I leave the house. I actually have to remind myself to grab the diaper bag, a bottle, and even a coat. I now know that the unplanned doesn’t just happen smoothly and stress-free, you have to plan to have an unplanned adventure. Does that make sense? Almost sounds contradictory, however, once you PLAN for the unplanned long enough it turns to habit. I believe that once the planning turns to habit making, this whole spontaneous life will, inevitably, be a lot less stressful.
I recently purchased a book, yes it was an unplanned adventure, about how to “get out of your head and into your life” (It is literally printed on the front cover). The book is called Unfu*k Yourself by Gary John Bishop. I am extremely excited to read it and I hope it can provide ideas on opening up to this big beautiful world.
