A murder is committed every day; that much is proven by the newscasters everyday. But one murder which is also committed every single day and which is never broadcasted is the murder of spontaneity. This is an offence of which we will all be found guilty if tried in the court of law. I want to put forward just two arguments for now (Feel free to try and prove me wrong in the comments section).
- Plans are invitation to disappointment. I wonder why we don’t just seize the moment, seize the opportunity at once. How often is our happiness destroyed by preparation and planning? What we fail to realize is that the greatest memories are made in the most unlikely of places. For instance, if you have sex beside a dumpster, you’ll never forget it. This is further proof that spontaneity is more rewarding than a meticulously planned life.
- Technology is an accomplice to the crime. We cant jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined (or stolen, if we decide to leave it behind). We cant skinny dip in the ocean because there’s no service on the beach. Also, adventures aren’t real unless they’re posted on Instagram or Snapchat for others to see. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventures and we’re helping to destroy it every time we Google, Check-in, upload and hashtag.
