That's what is going to be on my tombstone.
I am a creature of habit. If something works, I'm going to stick with it until it doesn't work anymore. And, if I'm going to try something new, I've got to know it has worked for at least 2 other people and will work for me.
Isn't that awful?!
One year, 2005, I think, I had a New Year's resolution to try one new thing every week. 52 new things, that's it. AND, they didn't have to be hard things at all. Some examples include:
Wear leather pants
Read a comic book
Bake a cake - seriously.
I so cheated, too. I got married that year. There are A LOT of firsts that come along with marriage, and I counted them all. Which brought my total to 20. TWENTY!
I'm not sure why I'm so afraid to try new things...(I did in fact try sushi, and I LOVED it. I still love it. I beg Micah for it at least once a month)...but, it needs to change. I'm missing out on wonderful things!!
So, I'm trying it again. 52 new things to try. I don't require myself to actually do one a week. I try, but I'm flexible just in case an opportunity arises.
I'm putting the things above on my list again, cause besides the sushi, I didn't do them. Some other ideas I have are:
ride a mechanical bull
visit another country (even if it's just Canada)
cook a turkey
take a class or two (fun ones on like arranging flowers, storm spotting, or photography!)
And, of course, I'm going to count graduating from college, because I'm lame.
What ideas do you have me? I need a lot!!
