Do something mad.
Do something rash.
Do something you’ve never done before.
Do something that makes you tingle.
Do something that makes you grin from ear to ear.
Do something that scares you just a bit.
Do it, do it, do it!
I went skiing for the very first time. Yes at my age!
For my birthday last year I had been given a set of ski lessons. Well I never got around to using them and just found the tickets the other day. Thought they would have already expired, but no, they have two months to run. There was a moment of doubt, well a big one really. That ‘come on you’ll never do it’, ‘why bother, you’ll never go on a ski holiday’, oh the usual inner pessimist shouting for attention. But there was also that little voice of excitement that thought, ‘Wow, yeah, bring it on, let’s do it NOW’.
Well the little voice won and I went for my first lesson yesterday.
Do you think it was good? Do you think it was fun?
It was AMAZING and I LOVED it.
There were 5 of us adult beginners in the class. There was much giggling and nervous chat. There was falling over in the snow, there was acting like kids. There was strangers laughing together and learning something new.
I’m going back again on Thursday.
Go on try something new, something different. Challenge yourself.
