Trying New Things

By Heather

How are you with trying new things? New foods, new activities? I have to confess, until recently I wasn’t good with it. New foods scared me, and I wasn’t that fond of trying new activities for the simple fear that I’m going to stink at it.


But I kind of had that light bulb moment that new things might be fun, and who can't use a little more fun in their lives? So, when the opportunity to play cornhole came up, I played. I think this is primarily a Midwest game, but it’s fun—especially when you’re good at it. I was (beginner’s luck?). And last week when I was on vacation with my family, I finally tried something I’d been wanting to try for a long time now: kayaking.

So, so fun. I’m so glad I gave it a try. Much easier than canoeing, by the way. I’m already looking forward to next year’s vacation and kayaking again.

Notice I didn’t mention trying any new foods. Yeah, well, I’m still working on that one. Give me time.

Have you tried anything new lately? Good or bad outcome?
