Palentine’s or Galentine’s day are quite simply a celebration of friendship, and some would say an antidote to the romantic pressure of February 14th . This relatively new ‘holiday’ has stemmed from a recognition that just as Valentine’s celebrates romantic love between two people, Palentine’s celebrates friendship and dedicates a day of the year to the most important people in your life.
The thought of spontaneous action is in itself a bit of a paradox. Spontaneity is one of those life skills that isn’t really a skill at all – it’s a predilection to a way of life that is vital for the happiness of some, and can induce a cold sweat in others.
We all like to think that we have the ability to be spontaneous but few of us are, and some people think of it as akin to chaos in an otherwise well-ordered world. The art of spontaneity itself is really the ability to release control and let-go. Planned outcomes can still be a factor but you don’t mind the journey you take to get there.
