Thankfully, as my brain has healed, it's more open to new things. And as my health continues to improve, I've been able to exercise a little bit of my old adventurous spirit once again. =)
So far it's only been in small things, baby steps I guess. =)
- Last month my mom took me out for lunch and I ordered something totally different: a crepe. It was delicious (though a little on the sweet side for me). I really enjoyed it, and it was fun to try something new.
- This month my mom talked me into watching an episode of Duck Dynasty. It's not my preferred genre of entertainment, but I watched it with her and did get some laughs out of it. =)
- I bought a shirt that's coral-colored. I don't think I've ever worn that color before, but at the moment I'm really enjoying it. =)
- I actually planted something - dug a hole, got my hands dirty and everything! =) (My former experience with plants was watering them occasionally for my mom. I definitely don't have her green thumb.)
These are small steps, but at least I'm moving in the right direction. =)
If you've been living in "survival mode," I hope you'll be encouraged that one day your adventurous spirit can return. We all go through various seasons in life. Right now I'm so grateful to be emerging from a season of suffering and transitioning into a season of new life.
I praise God that I Can try new things! And I'm looking forward to all the adventures He has in store for me in the near future. =)
What is something new or different that you can do to brighten up your week?
