Trust30 prompts: Surprise by Ashley Ambirge

I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think of a time when you didn’t think you were capable of doing something, but then surprised yourself. How will you surprise yourself this week?


It’s tempting to respond glibly to this one – “if I knew that, it wouldn’t be a surprise!” but that’s clearly contrary to the spirit of the exercise here.

I surprised myself last week by asking a friend of mine if he would collaborate in a creative project with me – and he said yes, so you’ll be hearing more about that one fairly soon.

This week, I haven’t yet surprised myself, but the week is young. I’m sure something will come up.
