Resolution New You #23 - Be spontaneous!

One way to be a better you in the new year is to disregard all your "big" plans and be spontaneous - at least for a day!  It is best to share the adventure with someone you love.  
So trust your gut instinct and let all inhibitions go.  Do not worry about the kids missing 1 day of school. Instead of dropping them off, take them to Disneyland for the day.  Instead of going to sleep in your bed, pitch a tent in the backyard and camp outside.  Instead of eating dinner at the table, make a picnic on the floor.  Start a food fight.  Dance after dinner.  Go to a movie at lunch time.  Whatever you do that is spontaneous and not your typical routine, it will be remembered by those who share the experience with you.  
We are so busy trying to make our life work out the way we plan, we are often disappointed when it doesn't go exactly as we want.  The solution:  let God oversee the big picture he has planned for you, while you live every minute with passion, freedom and fun - at least for a day! (I know I already said that but I realize this is a tough economy and I don't want to be responsible for getting you fired.) 

See our latest spontaneous day...we played hookie from school and work to find Adam Lambert.  It was a day we will always remember, even though it didn't go exactly as planned.
