“When open to the moment everyday surprises can cross our path.” #bgdtcoaching.
For the sake of this post, let’s limit the examination of everyday surprises to anything other than negative ones. ‘Doom and gloom’ events already have enough coverage in newspapers and TV reports without requiring our attention here today.
As much as it is useful to know where we are, it is fun to just wander from time to time. And everyday surprises seem to like this random behaviour. Invariably previously hidden treasures pop up when we are not deliberately looking for them.
Everyday surprises might take the form of a chance encounter with just the very person who can answer a question or help with a knotty query. At times everyday surprises have been known to surface not in a physical location, but as a thought or intuitive sensation in our body. That nagging feeling or reoccurring word is surely there for a reason, no?
Interpreting the meaning of everyday surprises is in most instances a question of listening to our inner wisdom. Yet whenever we do so, the results are more often than not beneficial to us.
