Increase your experience of Surprise today by trying one or more of these Surprising Bliss Initiatives:

  • Use “bad” surprises as a prompt for creativity. Look for the silver lining in the things that you don’t like and be surprised by your ability to adapt!
  • Make someone’s day. Look for opportunities to genuinely surprise someone and make their day.
  • Look for small surprises. I intend to be delighted by sunsets and sunrises. Find enjoyment from a wild bird who happens to pause on my lawn. Notice when my family tells me that they love me or when Rob’s kisses or hugs linger a bit longer then usual. If you are playing along with me, see what you can allow yourself to be surprised and inspired about!
  • Create fun surprises for my family and friends. This is a no-brainer but still it is a perfect expression for this virtue.
  • Surprise blog readers. Obviously this is one for bloggers. If you are not a blogger you can try this by engaging in surprising conversations with your co-workers or friends. Go ahead and do something surprising on your blog. Comment on something you wouldn’t normally say anything about, tell us something about your self which you think might shock us, write something completely off topic… generally shake things up!
