The First Time is Special

This weekend I tried a new workshop in 21 SECRETS Paper, Glue, Scissors.  It was exciting to gather the materials.  At the same time, I wasn’t sure what would happen once I got started.  This was new territory.  Would it feel clunky or flowing?  Would it be a good fit for me?   I was very aware of what I was experiencing as it unfolded.

It turned out that I thoroughly enjoyed creating these ladies!  While I’m looking forward to creating more, the experience will be different.  It won’t have that heightened first time specialness added to it.

When was the last time that you did something for the first time?

You could do something for the first time every day! 

  • Drive down a street you’ve never been on before
  • Play with a new art media or a new combination of colors
  • Talk to someone you don’t know
  • Read a new book

The myriad of feelings that bubble up as you do something for the first time heightens your experience of life and brings you alive.  What an incredible gift to give yourself!

The beginning of a new year also offers a sense of freshness with a vista of new experiences ahead.  Open the door into your 2019 to look at what is ahead:
