Why take someone else’s word?? Wouldn’t you rather find things out for yourself?? Wouldn’t you rather explore and feel things for yourself?? Why, as a society, are we so hesitant to try new things?? Why must we wait until we know 56 other people that have done it first before we give it a go??!!
You will not experience all the great things the world has to offer if you constantly say no. Try saying yes for a change and see what happens. If you had a horrible experience trying one thing so what?? Honestly, will that ruin your life?? No matter how many times we encounter failure, the important thing is that you learn from your own mistakes and triumphs. Never stop trying!!
Get more comfortable with trusting in yourself to make the right choices. Have you ever noticed that when you doubt yourself that is usually when the wrong choices are made?? You should really know yourself better than anyone else. If you don’t, then learn about you and what you like. Be honest with yourself. This is something I feel that we are all guilty of, me included. As a whole we should go see that movie solo or go take that class you have wanted to take. No one is stopping you other than you.
You need to do what will make you happy and in return your mind and body will be healthier and happier. Your health is not only important for you, but also important for all those around you. We affect others around us all the time. If you are angry and yell at someone, they get absorb that negativity and then pass it to the next person they come in contact with. However, if you are happy and smiling, that person you smiled at is now smiling to others. If you won’t do it for yourself, then at least do it for those around you.
Now that all that has been said, go out there and try something new!! For example you could try taking a super awesome Martial Arts class, I happen to know a good place ;)
