«When was the last time you did something for the first time?»
Thats probably one of my favourite questions. If it´s about seeing a new place, trying out some new food or go to that course you´ve always wanted to attend, but never did.
Learning and exploring are a huge part of us. And for me, it gives so much more happiness doing new things and learning new things. When I want to learn a new language, then I try to learn a new word every day, a word that I can use in my daily life. (Then it´s a lot easier to remember it too, hehe.) It doesn’t need to be all at once, the important thing is to begin.
And by doing something for the first time, it gives a little adrenalin, a little excitement to your everyday life. Like when I skydived. And being scared of heights and then skydive, was a huge step! It has always been on my bucket list. And, man that was fun!
But try something new, break the habit. It could even be changing the brand of your milk, read a book or walk to work. We humans are creatures that loves habits. Heck, even I buy the same toothpaste every time.
We are all learning as we´re living. But we gotta do something to live it. Be bosses of our own lives. So you can think back when 80 years old and remember all the cool crazy stuff you did.
So, when was the last time you did something for the first time? And I would love to know what you did!
