Let Your Life Surprise You


I was reading Penelope Trunk’s blog the other day and one of the lines grabbed ahold of me, “Let your life surprise you.”

I wonder how you do that?

You let go some.

You have faith.

You admit you don’t know everything.

You stop trying to control how it will all turn out.

I believe in creating and managing and happening to my life.

Letting my life surprise me seems a bit passive.

And yet, the idea of it hasn’t left me.

My whole life doesn’t have to be a surprise.  I can create most of it.

But I can also be surprised.

I can look for the unexpected beauty, love, and people that I couldn’t possibly have planned.

I can leave room for it.

I can hold some space for it.

I can let it surprise me.
