We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
My best friend once asked me ‘have you been to India before?’.
-I am a quarter Indian, you know that, right?
Yes but I have never heard a single India story. All these other places you told me stories.
-Yes you are right. I never told you stories because there are none. I go there, my family is with me all day and they mostly spoil me. Everything is planned, nothing unexpected happens, so no stories.
Now I think trying new stuff every day or treating every day like an adventure is probably a bit exaggerated and overrated. But planning to eliminate the unexpected leads to no stories at all. How big or small is the space in your life for unexpected things to happen? When is the last time something unexpected happened?
