My eleventh wish is that we allow ourselves more spontaneity in our lives and be more lighthearted, it is important to see the joy in your life. What was the last thing you did on the spur of the moment? Sometimes, I will go to a movie in the middle of the day…just because I can! As a Realtor, I work a lot of crazy hours so when I find myself with a couple of unscheduled hours in the middle of the day, I might stop by and catch a flick!
A couple of years ago, a friend and I went to the IU vs. OSU game in Bloomington, IN on New Years Eve. We had decided on the way down where we wanted to have dinner after the game and made reservations…but as we neared Assembly Hall, we saw signs for the French Lick Casino and I jokingly said since we were already half way there, we should go. When the game was over, we decided “what the heck”, cancelled our reservations, hit White Castle for dinner and a couple of ATM‘s for cash and headed South instead of North to Indy!
We had a blast, we got home at 6 a.m. after gambling all night (coming out winners – my friend $90 and me $120 – what do you expect, we play the Penny slots!) and stopping for breakfast at a roadside dinner (now that was an interesting experience!). It was one of my most memorable New Years, it’s fun to be spontaneous!
Have fun, be open to new experiences and be willing to go with the flow…you’ll be amazed at the joy you will find in your life.
