Last Tuesday morning, I woke up around 5am to go teach Pilates and saw a notification from my co-worker asking if I could leave for California at 8am for a work trip. WHAT!! I was supposed to teach Pilates until 8am, we were babysitting a family, and I had a million things to do that week. But since it seemed important, I dropped everything and went.. which was probably one of the more spontaneous things I’ve done in my lifetime. It’s so insane when a day takes you a completely different direction than you plan.
Since my job is remote, it’s rare that we are all together so it was a blast working in the same room for a couple days. My boss owns a trampoline park in Tijuana so we left the office one day and drove 40 miles South to Tijuana to go jump and have lunch. So random, but so fun.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it’s that saying YES can lead you to some pretty remarkable experiences. I had every reason to say no to the work trip. I had too much going on, felt stressed out of my mind, and was leaving the next week for NYC to surprise my sister. But for some reason, I just jumped for it and said yes and it turned out being one of the most fun trips of my life. I don’t know if it’s because of the stage of life Will and I are in or what, but we’ve said yes to almost every experience thrown our way the last couple months and it’s been some of the greatest months of our life.
Life is short. So why not?
