How might you surprise yourself?
How might you surprise others?
The easiest way to explore spontaneity is to experiment with could more than should.
Try a drive or journey without a fixed destination.
Try creating a flexi-day whether at work or play.
Try an alternative route or different method of transport.
Try smaller roads instead of motorways.
Try a surprise meal out or in.
Break the jelly mould, crack monotony; outwit boredom.
Embrace uncertainty and live in the moment.
Surprise yourself. Surprise others.
The time we spend is as different and unique as our fingerprints, bodies and faces.

If you have ever woken up at 4.30am in the morning, noted the time and dozed off again until 6.30am you know how fast two hours can zap by. That’s your life, that’s how brief time is and how important it is; how valuable and how necessary it is that you spend your life and time doing what you want to do.
