How long has it been since you tried something new?
Whether it’s walking into a new fitness class, signing up for language lessons, trying out a new hobby or activity, or even attempting to cook a new meal, breaking from routine and trying something new makes us come alive.
Trying new things makes us step outside of our comfort zone (which isn’t always easy!). But doing so not only spices up our day, but reminds us of just how capable we are. It gives us a sense of pride and accomplishment that we simply don’t get when we stick to the same old, same old.
Like many things we know will be good for us, it can be a challenge to actually take the plunge and dive into something new. Whether it’s traveling internationally for the first time, or joining a new book club, start by writing down a handful of activities, goals, and even meals that spark your interest.
Pickleball? Pottery class? Tai Chi? Gardening? Creative storytelling?
Write down anything and everything that sounds fun to you. Then, choose one to start with and schedule it in your calendar.
Mark Twain said, “To live a fulfilled life, we need to keep creating the “what is next” of our lives. Without dreams and goals there is no living, only merely existing, and that is not why we are here.”
You don’t have to sail across the world, master the piano or learn how to cook a six-course meal to enrich your life. Just try out something new for the fun of it and don’t be afraid to be a beginner.
Take time to do what makes your soul happy. It’ll bring a much-deserved smile to your face. 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
