What if...?

What will happen if today…….:

• I misbehave?

• I remove my mask and stop pretending?

• I do things without thinking twice or its consequences or what the others may say?

• I act as if I have the same innocence and the same will for adventure that I had when I was 6 years old?

• I’m spontaneous and I forget everything I have learnt?

• I call a friend to tell her how much I love and miss her and that I do not remember why we fought and I no longer care, because all I want is to have her back in my life. Since all I remember are the good moments we spend together and I want to enjoy them again.

• Instead of getting annoyed with the supermarket cashier because she is having a bad day and has decided to take it on me, I ignore her attitude and then treat her with more kindness than the usual one?

• I put on my best dress, shoes and perfume and sit to wait for my loved one, then when he comes and he asks me: “Where are you going gorgeous?” I just answer: “Nowhere, I was waiting for you!”

What will happen if……?

The list is very long; there are so many things we do not do because we are afraid of breaking the rules, or to be labeled as crazy or risking everything we have…
So what! Life is supposed to be fun, so let us dance while we travel our road, always remembering that what matter most is the way we travel and not to where we are heading to!

Would be nice...just once...not to consider the consequences of things. Not sure I've ever done it. Perhaps it's time. Perhaps not.

Think I was 5 the last time I acted without considering the consequences.

I've haven't touched a hot stove since.

Yes! Go for it, enjoy it.

As I understand it, this spontaneity is the way the Dalai Lama lives, trusting his every impulse. We can't expect to be that free of conceits but why not do those things things? They will make you and others happy.

W&W: Why not? Just try; there is nothing to lose and a lot to gain. Life is short, so it is allowed to be mischievous every now and then.

Kirk: maybe it is time to touch that hot stove again… it didn’t kill you then, so…

June: Welcome to the blog!!!
Living spontaneously following our heart desires is the key to happiness, when we think too much we mess up. So simple and so complicated at the same time… to many rules to break, to many assumptions to crash…
But, I’m on it, living by the day, having fun and enjoying as much as I can.
