This post is a part of Five Minute Friday, a writing flash mob that happens every week when writers are prompted by a single word to write for 5 minutes without any major editing. Just raw thoughts and emotions. You can find out more and/or join the party here.
I am super excited that my first post on my new site is a part of my Five Minute Friday Community! They are where I found my start, so it’s kind of fitting that I begin with them here as well!
Are you afraid to try new things, always staying safely within your comfort zone? Are you the dare devil, always up for something new? I stand somewhere in the middle. While you won’t find me skydiving anytime soon, I am usually up for trying a new restaurant with my honey, even though I refused to try to cow’s tongue he ordered one weekend. I’m sorry, but that’s just gross. I have however tried squid, or was octopus?
What if trying something new isn’t about you, but about your significant other, or your kids, or your friends. Somewhere in life, one of these people is going to want to go do something you’ve never done before. If you’re like me, there is nothing you love more than making the people you love smile. So, go ahead and try something new. Make the love of your life’s day. Make your kids think you are the coolest mom or dad ever. Set aside your own fears and doubts and take a leap. You just might find something that you love, that you can now do with the ones you love.
