Stay open and ready for special moments

I know it sounds a bit contradictory to be organized and prepared for spontaneous moments. But I believe that by staying organized, you open your life up to allow more spontaneous moments. In the desert we get some amazing sunsets. I keep a picnic blanket on our back patio, folded in a chest where we keep outdoor toys. So if I’m in the middle of washing dishes, homework or whatever mundane task is taking precedence at that moment, and I see the sky lighting up in gold, tangerine, neon red and sometimes lavender, we can quickly grab the blanket, and sit on the grass to watch the sky change colors. It doesn’t take much time out of my evening, the sun has set in a matter of minutes, but those memories will last a lifetime.
