Try it; you might like it...


It takes courage to go new places and try new things: it’s always easier to go where and do what you know.  The key, it seems, is to be curious about the things you know little or nothing about. There are probably lots of restaurants that you’ve never tried: it’s easier to go into someplace you know, and where they know you – like Cheers. And people: walking into a room full of strangers presents all kinds of obstacles and worries; it’s not  easy to introduce yourself to a stranger. Or starting a new job: it’s confusing at first and then it all becomes familiar. And lifestyle options: we all have our own habits that are hard to break or change. I’ve experienced all of those changes, and more, and I confess I was nervous about all of them. But, if you’re fearful about anything new you’ll probably be too hesitant to try… and you might miss out on some really cool opportunities.  Be curious about and open to the options that present themselves to you today.
