A friend recently said to me “your life is so random…”
Hearing that really made me think. I didn’t know what to make of it.
“Is that a good thing or bad? What does it even mean?”
As I started to reflect on my short 26 years and what I’ve been through, I can’t help but agree with her.
MY LIFE IS 100% COMPLETELY INSANELY RANDOM… and guess what? I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
I hate planning – I really like originality and spontaneity.
Since I was a child, I remember being very open to new experiences and sometimes doing the WRONG thing JUST so I could see what happens.
“Let’s Wing It”
I can remember in high school, we had a saying (in my group of friends) – “let’s just wing it.”
The rule was that we could not PLAN anything for a weekend night. We’d just say “let’s meet here and see where the night takes us.”
Those were our best nights.
So, you know what? Loosen your belt a little, let down your defenses and LIVE A LITTLE.
MY CHALLENGE TO YOU
Do just ONE thing without planning it.
Maybe you go out Friday night with no idea what you’re doing.
Maybe you walk into a presentation at work completely unprepared.
Maybe you wake up one morning and just call in sick to go exploring the city.
…Maybe you get in the car and start driving into unchartered roads “just to see…”
Do something spontaneous. Take a risk.
Seriously – what’s the worse that can happen?
So, yes, my life is random. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. EVERYTHING great in my life has come from randomness.
Are you strong enough to be random?
