Surprise myself….consider NOT choosing “my ordinary…”

~

~

Sometimes, I seem to get a bit stuck in a “rut”….
Choosing the routine…. choosing my  “ordinary”

Perhaps NOT expanding or exploring…
NOT trying out new ideas, activities or perspectives

~

Perhaps instead, I might try…
shifting gears,
becoming increasingly curious…

surprise myself be curious
surprising myself…
by NOT choosing my ordinary

~

~

I seem to benefit from continually reminding myself…..
to “surprise myself”
to get out of those repetitive habits or limitations.

~

surprise myself be curious

~

There are so many places, activities, classes, people and opportunities
to choose to explore, reach out, expand, experiment…
to consider not choosing
“my ordinary”

~

~
Surprising myself…a bit like my own version of a protein boost
…except…
accessing my own “energy boost”

~

~

tapping into
my own positive inspirations, possibilities,  motivations, energy, initiative…

~

~

~

~

Perhaps, there’s someone who might benefit
from a boost of energy, ideas and support?

~

Surprise myself blank

~

~
Tapping into and using positive energies…
Becoming increasingly curious about possibilities and potentials….

~

surprise myself explore create waking up

~

Creating new opportunities and perspectives….
Waking up…
Surprising myself….
Surprising ourselves….
by not choosing……. the “ordinary”

    Good reminders! “Curiosity” is one of my words for this year, and sometimes I get so stuck in the ordinary rut that I forget about it.

    • “Curiosity”….what a terrific word to inspire your year! Go, Curiosity! It’s a favorite of mine, too! I’m increasingly realizing that when I live with a wider sense of “curiosity,” that leads to so many varied layers of benefits for me! I’ve been reading a good book, with lots of really interesting perspectives about curiosity: “Curious?” by Todd Kashdan. And of course, “Big Magic” has so many wonderful ideas about curiosity, too! Love Curiosity!

    I just realized that I can peruse your blog when I need inspiration as I was away from WP for a while and have not read all your posts. The word “curiosity” is one that gives me a sense of playfulness and more willingness to get out of a rut and do something that is different. I will surprise myself this week. I am curious to see what shows up. 🙂
