Sometimes it is important to shake things up. We had friends who taught us about Pajama Ice Cream Runs (a surprise trip to get cones AFTER bedtime!) The memory of those rare treats is as precious decades later as it was on those giggly nights.
This is a difficult season. Routines and schedules are in the toolbox that gets us through. But we mustn’t forget that surprise and silliness are super valuable as well. Though counter-intuitive, you might even need to plan for a little chaos.
Today you were spontaneous. You haven’t lost control (or your mind!) But instead, you chose to go with your gut and take a happy break from the agenda. You’ll get back to it soon, you probably need to – but you’ll be better for the respite.
