Spontaneity

Life becomes boring when you keep following a routine day after day, year after year. That is why a little spontaneity is required to spice things up in life.

Take today as an example. I did something really off the grid. I didn't plan for it to happen. Just a basic instinct and I jumped right to it.

If you're wondering what I did, I dyed my hair light brown. I don't usually do that. My hair's naturally jet black and I've been keeping it that way.

However, today, I just wanted to change my appearance a little bit. I went to a salon and did the unimaginable.

I won't lie, I got a little shocked at first seeing my hair all brown. I even thought to hit the reset button to change things back. But then, I started liking it.

Only in spontaneity can we be who we truly are.
— Mahavishnu John McLaughlin

It was something new. And as Barney Stinson would say, "New is always better".

So go out unplanned and do something new. Break out of your routine once in a while. Sure, people will think you're crazy but does it matter? What matters is if you're happy.

Do what makes you happy. Be spontaneous and not boring. Ditch that routine once in a while.

Go live.

Unplanned moments are always better than planned ones. Take some time off from your planned schedule and do something crazy.
