Trying New Things

The topic for today's blog, is 'Trying New Things'. Why? Because that is exactly what I am doing! I have started my first ever blog, which is something that I wasn't sure I would ever do, even though I wanted to. The reason why I finally decided it was time to start one is down to the fact that I just love writing so much and wanted to try something new. I carry a notebook and pen with me in my bag wherever I go as I never know when an idea is going to come. Writing is something that gets me through a lot of things - whether they be good or bad.

I feel that trying new things is such a good and healthy thing to do. It keeps you open minded and somewhat optimistic. Never shut yourself out from any possibilities or opportunities that you may come across. Especially if the reason why you do not wish to take up that opportunity is because of lack of confidence. If you do not try, you will never know what hidden talents or abilities that you may discover!

Don't worry if the first time you try doing something new, it feels strange or it doesn't go as well as you first hoped. Try again! Don't worry if you realise that it isn't something you enjoy, at least you tried!

So, what is there for you to do? Absolutely everything!

Here are some ideas:
  • A new sport
  • Play an instrument 
  • Learn a new language
  • Learn how to cook
  • Listen to a new genre of music
  • Try a new cuisine
  • Start a blog! Or even a diary!
  • Learn meditation, yoga, pilates or any form of exercise!
  • Forgive someone who has hurt you - it's always good to let things go
  • Compliment someone
  • Go out somewhere - anywhere! - and take photographs so you can capture anything that strikes your interest, and then create something with them. Maybe put them into an album, or share them via social media
  • Try a new look - one that you like and feel comfortable in
  • Watch a sunrise, or sunset! Or just find a nice spot and look at the stars - it can be quite fascinating. Last time I watched the stars, I saw two shooting stars!
  • Tell someone important how thankful you are to have them in your life
And the list goes on!

It is never too late to try something new! I understand that it is not as easy as just going out and doing something for many people, so just take it one step at a time! There are a lot of things in the list above that you can do in the comfort of your own home, so stay open minded!

The world is way too big of a place for you to have run out of new things to experience, believe me, there will always be something new and I truly believe that that is the beauty of this world. Trying out something you have never done before, or have maybe tried and given up on all too quickly, can really open up a new perspective. For most of us, maintaining our daily schedules and routines can make us feel secure, but there is nothing wrong with breaking out of your comfort zone or gaining knowledge and confidence!

So what will you try today?

Until next time, be you and keep smiling.
