Recently I came across a question that got me thinking. On the surface it seemed like a rather easy one… but it turned out it was a little frustrating as I tried to figure out my answer.
The question is this: When is the last time you did something for the first time?
It was hard for me to answer because I’m a status quo, routine loving guy. Sticking to schedules and rigid plans leaves little room for new experiences.
That question got me to realize that I need to loosen up a little bit. Live a little and try new things!
Disc golf and family YouTube nights were the two most recent firsts that I could think of. Competing in an Iowa State Fair contest and rappelling down the side of a building are two upcoming “firsts” that I’ll be experiencing soon.
One thing I also realized is that every new first time event doesn’t need to be a big deal. It could be the first time trying a new food, listening to a new band, or even taking a new way to work.
How about you? When was the last time you did something for the first time and what was it?
