I received this tweet recently from a gentleman:
Don’t you feel spontaneity is important as well? Not everything should be a plan.
I will be the first to acknowledge that I am “spontaneity challenged,” so I do tend to think in terms of “planning.”
That said, spontaneity often needs a helping hand from planning, organization and general preparation.
If your games are well organized and in a convenient place, you can play a game with your man on the spur of the moment (as opposed to digging around to find that game and spending more time searching than playing).
If you have your bedroom straightened and your bedroom items tucked where you can find them easily, then a little afternoon delight is an easy thing.
If your pantry is full and organized, you can whip up his favorite cookies whenever you like, instead of having to run to the store for ingredients, washing up a few dishes and “Where are those cookie sheets?”
Spontaneity is great, yes, it really is. Spontaneity can communicate love in a way that is like a party for your spouse’s heart. It says I have a free moment and I want to spend it with you! Now!
Just make that easier for yourself … with a little planning (OK, I couldn’t help myself).
He who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration. Samuel Taylor Coleridge
