Spontaneity

I am the last thing from spontaneous. I'm not against the idea of surprises, but
I typically like feeling prepared. Perhaps it's my inner type A, but I like to plan for events
in advance so I can stay organized keep my sanity. 

Lately, I've been trying to be a bit more spontaneous with my free time. During the week, I have such a hectic schedule that I need to stay super organized or I would totally be unproductive. On days I have some free time though, I'm trying to keep time open to do whatever I feel like- at that exact moment. Sometimes it's a walk around the city, catching up on blogging, meeting with friends, or just sleeping. 

Last week though I did something really, well, not me- I bought a ticket to a concert,
and knew absolutely no one going.

I really wanted to go see this band, but no one I knew wanted/could go with me. I seriously texted, called, and pleaded everyone on my contact list to go... to no avail.
So, after feeling like I would regret not taking advantage of the opportunity, I made up my mind to buy a ticket and then worry about finding people to go with later.
It was both exhilarating and terrifying.


For awhile it seemed like no one was going, but I finally mentioned it to some random guy in my class and he connected me to some friends that her knew were going. In the end, the concert was awesome and I ended up making new friends. The whole experience wasn't anywhere near as awkward or disastrous as the scenarios had I been playing in my head; it really reminded me that sometimes we need that little dose of spontaneity to spice up our lives. There are those moments in life that need to be free from regiment and order.

A little sponteanuity never hurt no body.

  1. This is so cute! I really struggle with doing things in which I'm not "being productive." (I sweat that's part of the reason I started my blog!) This was so inspiring to just do things once in a while for yourself!! :) Love your concert story!

    1. It's so nice to know I'm not the only one! I came across the same situation yesterday when I went off on my own little adventure in the city. I've found it's actually very empowering to be able to do something for just yourself every now and then.:) xo Tia
