The Gift Of Joy

Sometimes life get so predictable that we are doing things on automatic pilot. Our schedules have been set so there is no planning involved, in fact it would disturb us if things were to change. But what happens when life gets so routine, that we lose the joy that we once found in what we do. We begin to do things because it has always been done that way. If we were to deviate from what is, it would disrupt the pattern that we have created. We have become rigid in our thinking and way of life. If something were to change, how flexible and accomodating would we be. Thinking about doing things differently might bring a loss of control to the safe life we created. But the universe creates havoc at the most unexpected times so that we are forced to adapt. But in adapting, we may experience the gift of joy. Today, do something different. Open yourself to a new experience that will bring joy into your life.
How many of us are prepared...
(I'm a planner and find more comfort in the routine, but on occasion I've had to adapt to the situation. Okay, more occasions than I'd like. But I think as a planner, I plan for the unexpected. There is joy in doing even the most routine things, if I keep my eyes open to what the universe may have planned for me. Everyday is a joy! S- Hope all is well in Boston. Thanks for the pictures.)
