Spontaneity is hard for me. Not only because I can’t drive, but I also have scheduled caregivers to think about. I envy those who can just jump in the car when they hear about a sale. Or be able to grab lunch when they see an enticing commercial. Although it’s still difficult I’m trying to be more spontaneous. Even if it takes a little planning.
Our local movie theater has $5 ticket Tuesdays. Wanting to take advantage of that deal I asked Mom on Monday if she wanted to go the next day. She said sure, so I had to pick a showtime that correlated with my PCA schedule. It worked out and we had fun, so we’ll probably do that more often.
For about a month Olive Garden was running the yummiest looking commercials. Pasta is something I cheat with, so I was just waiting for the opportunity. Since it’s about an hour away I had to bide my time. When the opportunity presented itself I jumped on it. Of course the specific promotion I saw was over, but hey I got the pasta and it was delicious.
Do you have any tips on living more spontaneously? What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done? I need some inspiration.
