Lemon Slice.

I love surprises.

Sometimes you need to surprise yourself out of the blue. Do something you've always wanted to do. Do something spontaneous. Do it for yourself. Do it for others. Just do it.

Go rock climing. Go bungee jumping. Go sky diving. Go jump off a bridge. No, I'm kidding. Unless you want to. I know I would. And it doesn't have to be something adventurous. It can be anything. Go buy yourself an ice cream on a winter night. Go sip a cup of hot chocolate by yourself in a coffee shop and just watch the world go past. Go tell somebody you love them. Go buy roses for your loved one. Go talk to a stranger on the train. Because you never know, the thing that you do could be the turning point in your life.

So what are you waiting for?

Start by spicing up your life with a lemon slice.
