When I was younger, spontaneity was a normal routine in my life. Over the years, though, I somehow lost this. Responsibilities to the family and working full-time probably had a lot to do with this loss.
Even after moving up to North Dakota, this continued to be elusive mostly due to my anxiety issues.
Less than a week ago, hubby asked if I wanted to take a road trip with him.
Okay, he practically begged me to go. He said he wanted to spend some time with me outside the home.
At first, I resisted. As I thought of all that’s been going on in the world, I realized that tomorrow was never promised to us, but it’s up to us to make the most of the present.
So, I said yes.
Between Monday night (when we left and drove all night) and early Saturday morning, we had an awesome time in southwestern Montana. It was a whirlwind, but everything we did, we did on a whim without any planning at all.
God, how I’ve missed being spontaneous!
Allowing yourself to let go a little and give yourself permission to reclaim your childhood spirit even if only for a few days does wonders for your soul!
It is something I do not do enough of.
I hope to change that.
Here are a few photos from our trip:
