It may seem paradoxical to expect the unexpected. However, if we only look for what we expect to find, what will show up will be more of the same. By choosing to be surprised and intrigued by the unknown, we open our thoughts to new ideas and solutions. It is in the unexpected that we discover and create. This week, plant this thought at the beginning of your day; “Today I will see without looking for something. I will look up and around and see all that is alive in this space and time.” Just observe what you see and be mindful of how your feel when the unexpected presents itself to you; it will happen in ways that you least expect.
