Aren't they lovely? Mark brought these back from a jaunt to the grocery store a few evenings ago.
There's something about receiving a simple surprise gift or gesture that transports me to a state of almost child-like excitement. What I've come to understand, though, is that I also have the ability to bestow surprises upon myself. That's right, and doing so results in these same feelings of exuberance .
No, I'm not necessarily talking about buying myself flowers (which I, without a doubt, love to do). What I'm referring to are those times when I get an on-the-spot inkling to act upon something...and I honor it. Taking a different route home from work, granting myself a quick break from duties to step outdoors and view a lovely flower garden, calling someone I've been thinking about... These are some of the many gifts I give myself by simply trusting and following my own inner wisdom. Surprise!
See if you can't surprise yourself, today. Trust me, it's a totally fab experience! T.
