Viewing entries tagged surprise
When was the last time you discovered a new author…recipe…restaurant…or museum exhibit? Finding something surprising and unique makes you feel alive and gets you excited about the world. One of the most pleasant experiences is opening a wrapped gift—peeling off the paper and finally discovering what’s inside. If you think about it, the world is full of these exciting “uncoverings.” Be on the lookout for new finds. They are all around you.
The next time you find yourself with a little time on your hands, whether it’s 10 minutes or four hours, why not take an aimless walk, otherwise known as an amble? The word itself says it all—an amble is an easy, leisurely walk with no particular destination in mind. You can do it in the country, town or city. You might not know exactly where you are or what you will find—and that’s the charm! When you least expect it, you will come upon something that truly surprises or delights you—a vista…a shop…or a stone wall on which to sit and relax.
