SURPRISE! WHAT WAS IT?
Every year brings some twists and turns. What came out of left field this year? What was shocking? What was confusing and completely misaligned to your expectations?
Perhaps you were very surprised by world events. Or perhaps it was your own reactions, feelings and thoughts that surprised you. Maybe you had some very pleasant surprises – or others that were very uncomfortable shocks to the system.
When we’re caught off guard, that can create a “gap” in our story that can be hard to bridge. Reminding ourselves how we were surprised and telling the story can help us make sense of it and integrate it into our narrative in a more seamless way.
What were your surprises? Why were you surprised?
