Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

Something unexpected

Something unexpected will happen today. Decide right now that when it comes, you will treasure it.

Something will come along that you didn’t plan for, and at first you might feel anger, fear, annoyance, resentment. But look more closely, and see if there is some kind of new value you can gain from it.

You’re smart to anticipate and prepare for what is likely to occur. Yet you can also find great benefit in embracing what’s unlikely, unusual, unexpected.

Something unexpected can help you discover skills, preferences, ideas you never knew you could have. Something unexpected can nudge you to look at life from a new, more enlightened perspective.

It’s good to stay focused, but don’t be too quick to judge when something unexpected disrupts that focus. Every so often, disruption can be invigorating.

Be prepared for not being prepared, be expecting what you could never expect. And find a way that you can employ it to add new richness to your world.

— Ralph Marston
