A Thought On Being Spontaneous

If there was ever a word to describe me, I would 100% not put my money on 'spontaneous'.  I like to be organised and know what is going on etc but am never one to make snap decisions really.  Hell, I can't even decide what I want to eat on a day never mind anything else.

But then when I started thinking about it, maybe I am spontaneous.  It's like when I get an idea in my head, I go with it and it gets stuck in there until I do it.

For example, my trip to Australia, I can't remember when and why I decided that I wanted to go but once I had thought about it,  I was continuously looking at flights for the earliest opportunity for me to get on a plane and leave and then one day about a week or so later I just booked it.  That was it, I was off to Australia to start my travels.  Just like that.

Or that time last year when I drove past a Fiat 500 car garage after banging on for so long that I would like to upgrade and own the Fiat 500, mum and I drove back to the garage, took the car for a test drive, went home, came back to the garage in my Corsa, bought the Fiat 500 right then, swapped the cars and I drove home in a brand new car.  Just like that.

Or that time when Soph made a joke saying I should move in with her.  So I did.  I thought about it for aprox 5 second, then I made my mind up there and then that I wanted to do it and a month later I had moved in.  Just like that.

Or even a couple of weekends ago, just after I had come home from holiday in Lanzarote and Soph and I were having a conversation that we should go on holiday together for a little break.  We started looking, thought about where would be the best place to visit for our instagrams and next minute it was booked. Just like that.  FYI - we booked Santorini! Instagrams gonna be on point!

So when I think about it, in some aspects maybe I am spontaneous.  I mean packing a suitcase to travel half way round the world or trading in your car for a brand new one that very same day are not easy decisions to make.  Decisions like that should take time and a lot of thought but not for me.  I am the worst decision maker in the world (seriously though!) but how is it that I can make the biggest decisions of my life so spontaneously? It makes no sense whatsoever.

Making those big decisions spontaneously has been a hell of a lot of fun and they are decisions that I haven't and won't regret ever.  Travelling Australia was the most incredible time of my life and I would do anything to relive that year again.  My new car is just the cutest and I love nothing more than driving around in it singing at the top of my voice.  Moving in with Soph has been insane, it's pretty awesome to live with a fellow blogger who understands my struggles of what to post on instagram next and someone who I can bounce blog ideas off and don't get my talking about our holiday to Santorini, I'm just too excited!

I think everyone needs to be a little bit more spontaneous with their decision making, however big or small that decision may be, I bet you won't regret any of it.
