Sometimes when you see a movie, you get a lot more than you expect.
This weekend I saw Dan in Real Life, and it was more than I expected. It was funny, whimsical, and REAL.
If you live as if you plan to be surprised, you are open for anything that can happen. There’s a freedom that comes from living as if you don’t know what’s next.
Just imagine for a moment how you felt when you were a child anticipating Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or Ramadan or Pancha Ganapati.
You woke up each morning filled with joy and excitement. You had X number of days until it was time for a big celebration. You just knew that somehow your wishes would be fulfilled.
For today, live as if you’re a child anticipating a big surprise! After all, you never know when you’ll land the big contract or meet the perfect person or secure the perfect job.

I definitely need a new job! Any advice for looking for a job during the holidays/end of year? Can you do an advice post on this topic? I can’t be the only one with this dilemna.
Too bad you didn’t comment with an identity or email address…
