I began looking for them in earnest almost four years ago. You have to be mindful or you will discount their value. When you chance on your unexpected surprise, you have to drink it in and allow it to wash you in gratitude. It can change the trajectory of your day. When you make it a daily habit, you can alter your outlook on life.
Of course, some of them are more like a punch in the gut. You don’t miss those surprises because time stands still. It does that so you can catch your breath and accept it. Then you exhale gratitude that you have the strength to carry it forward.
Either way, you are changed for the better… unexpectedly.
