Most people avoid surprises. We like to feel in control. Even good surprises can scare us sometimes.

Yet, surprises make us feel alive. When we feel surprised we live in the present moment. We don't think about the past or the mountain of emails waiting in our inbox--we just focus on being and reacting to what's happening now.

Don't run from surprises. Seek them. They bring energy to our lives. Try it! You might be surprised.
