Most everything in our day to day is a choice. Most of those choices we make without even realizing it. Will I go to work today? Will I call a friend or just read a book when I get home? What will I eat for dinner? We already know the pros and cons of these little choices we make every day and hopefully our choices create a healthy habit. But sometimes it is good to get out of our comfort zone too.
Last weekend we ate a new (to us) brewery called Norsemen. Looking at the menu, my younger self would have said "nope, too different, let's find something else." Instead, my more adventurous self said, let's try it!" It was delicious!
You never know what you are missing if you don't give it a try. So try that unusual new recipe. Visit somewhere new. Try out a new activity that you have always been interested in but never tried. Write up a business plan and see if you can launch a business. Make the most out of your adventure! After all, you wouldn't fly halfway around the world just to hide in your hotel room, would you? Why spend life that way?
I'm grateful for some delicious new food. I'm grateful to be trying new things and living my adventure. I'm grateful to see my girls trying new things too. I'm grateful for microadventures that have really added to our family time and gotten us out and about. I'm grateful for a husband that is very willing to experiment with new recipes. I'm grateful for a husband that is up for an adventure. I'm grateful to be living this life.
May today remind us to enjoy the time we have on earth. May we always be willing to try new things. Have a beautiful day!
