Faith Applied

Nov 17, 2018

Most people spend most of their lives doing the same things day after day after day. While habits can help productivity, and routine can bring comfort and convenience, if we don't venture out and try new things, we can stagnate and miss some of the beauty, excitement, and growth that exists outside of our comfort zone. 

Consider this: children develop at a fast pace partly because they regularly try things they have never done before. Every day we ask children to face a fear, to reach a new boundary, to try a new food, to try a new activity – to explore, learn and grow.  We encourage children to try new things but rarely do the same.

What happens to that curiosity as we age? Why do we let ourselves get in the way from exploring and testing and trying and growing?

When was the last time you tried something new? 

Whether it's as simple as a new genre of food or mode of exercise to something that's grander like pursuing that passion project or going after something that's on your bucket list.

“If we continue to do what we have always done, we will continue to get what we have always got.” ~ Steven Hayes
