Surprises

Even if it is a garden you know by heart there are twelve months in the year
and every month means a different garden, and the discovery of things unexpected all the rest of the year.

~ Margery Fish

On my desk sits a calendar with the statement of the day. “No matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.” We are all unique and full of surprises.  Life is not a bowl of cherries, but a basket of fruit.  Who knows what will come next and who you will be from one day to the next.  We need to live with a sense of surprise and be aware of the uniqueness of each day and not be surprised by that.

I always call myself a multiple personality, but I am still surprised, at times, by who shows up.  Usually whoever shows up is fun, though there are times I have to make apologies for his behavior.  The problem is our minds and how they handle surprises.  Surprises and unexpected occurrences are all a part of life.  You are not in charge, so sit back and enjoy.

If you are a multiple personality, like most of us, someone in there knows how to handle the next surprise you encounter.

Peace,
Bernie
