Life is too short. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. I know that I want to live a life void of should’ves and could’ves. That’s why it’s important to try new things – to strive for new experiences – to see of what this world has to offer.
One of my good friends is now an avid Tango dancer and travels to different countries to partake in Tango marathons. She’s a great example of what trying new things can lead to. In her case, tango became a lifelong passion and it all stemmed from being open to trying it out in the first place.
Earlier this month I finally tried archery, a sport that I always wanted to try. I LOVED IT (to the point that I’m starting to look into getting my own bow and arrows). I think it’s important for people to make time to try new things. If you have the thought to try something new, go and do it! Don’t think too much or make excuses. You’ll be happier for it.
