Surprises happen on a daily basis, ranging from tiny occurrences to major events. Regardless to size, they are all worthy of noticing. Sometimes they take on the delightful form of a gift, and other times it merely is noticing a change. However, surprise is part of what makes each day interesting.
I think most of my days are filled with surprising events, some more easily recognized. On a recent Friday, I was in the midst of a workout with music and thoughts filling my mind when my teenage son sauntered down the stairs to ask a question. Needless to say, his presence was a scream-worthy surprise, as I was in my own world. Later in the day a package arrived, addressed to my husband. Imagine my delighted surprise to discover the package was for me! A present for no reason is a wonderful surprise. Finally, when returning to the desk in my home office, it made me smile to find an “I love you” left on the blotter by my teenage daughter.
Surprises are everywhere, obviously some more shocking and some more exciting than others, but all of them add detail to our days. Some of the best surprises can be from simply learning a new fact or making a new friend.
At WMG, we have found several surprises this week. From a television show that made more of an impression than the reviewer had imagined to a series of surprising sporting events to a sipping beverage that proved to be quite enjoyable.
Remember to look for surprises, they are bound to be lurking in your world.
