We live in this huge world with a thousand and one potential influences lurking around every corner. We can meet people via the internet and build meaningful online relationships; some of those turn into real-life relationships down the road. Yet, it can be scary to try something new. Humans have a tendency of really enjoying knowing the outcome of things before they fully commit. So many wonderful things were accidental discoveries. Penicillin is the default example, let some bread mold and the next thing you know you have a cure for a social disease that's quite embarrassing.
When was the last time you tried something totally new (sex toys don't count!)? Do you always stick to the same genre of movies, books, or music? When was the last time you really pushed your comfort zone?
We encourage all of you to try something new today or this weekend. Go to the outskirts of town and see what's lurking in your local mom and pop shops, or try a new food you've always heard was delicious, or pick a band you're unfamiliar with and listen to their catalog - just do something new. Add some spice and variety to your routine! And of course, as always we would love to hear what these things you want to try are!
