The Beauty of the Unexpected

A sudden shift in melody, an unexpected pause

The change in light at daylight’s end that brings a sudden thrill

A new taste swirling ’round the mouth

The wakening pulse with travel

The unexpected brings with it refreshing change of perspective

I am challenging myself to embrace the unexpected this weekend. To not react to it with anxiety and trepidation, but with openness and excitement. Something different. Something exciting. A new challenge. An obstacle to figure a workaround. A change in my too stubborn mindset.

Here is a treasured photo of my son at age 7 embracing the unexpected, circa 2001. We were doing the tourist thing at the Cliffs of Moher, and a kind musician saw his interest in his accordion. He immediately offered Joshua a go at it. Better yet, Joshua jumped right in and went for it, with little knowledge of the instrument. Beautiful memory, wonderful encouragement and joy for all of us.

Blessings to you as you embrace your unexpected surprises this weekend, Lisa
