Try Something New

“Bask in the glory of knowing that you will not be stuck in the ordinary…” These words will be etched in my mind. For those times I start to chicken out and question why I attempt to try something new. Thank you for sharing your sticking-your-neck-out story.

The Discerning Traveler

My husband and I have our favorite restaurants in the local area that we frequent. Each time we go, I immediately turn to the dish that I ordered the last time we were there. My husband  says… “Why don’t you try something new?” Really, after all I love the way that this restaurant prepares calamari or salmon.  Wonder if I am not satisfied, then it has been a waste, right? With encouragement, I tentatively move out of my comfort zone and try a new dish. Each time I  am pleasantly surprised and now have an additional item to add to my repertoire.

Recently, I had the opportunity to read the post “Stick Your Neck Out” written by blogger, Jan, the Silverliningmama ( This posting reminded me of how tentative we are about trying new things and when we don’t, it robs us of the excitement and joy of exploring the band width of life’s offerings.
