I cant even emphasize enough the necessity of trying new things once in a while… Sometimes it seems like life just moves in a cycle; home -> school/work -> home -> church (or anywhere else you frequent) -> home…and the cycle is a continuous loop!
A lot of people are actually comfortable with their routine, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but once in a while, it’s good to try something new, go out, take a walk, meet new people, learn a new sport or a new skill…doing something out of your routine could prove to be really refreshing.
Giving yourself the go-ahead to open up and let the world in, even if its just a little, is a huge step in bringing new people and experiences into your life. Don’t limit yourself by letting fear stop you from trying something new, give yourself a chance to explore!
Everyday brings an opportunity to learn and experience something new and meet/interact with new people, seize that opportunity, learn and experience everything you can and use that knowledge to change the world around you (if it comes to that *big grin*)
One thing I’ve come to realize is that, by leaving your comfort zone and taking that leap of faith into something you’re not familiar with, you find out your true capabilities, you discover things about yourself you never knew were possible…
The truth is, if you always do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always got, the point of life is to move higher, to improve on who we are today, isn’t that right? Well to make those improvements in your life, you have to do things you’ve never done, know someone new, go somewhere new…DO something NEW!
