Make a commitment to learn something new. Have you always wanted to knit, roller skate, skydive, or play an instrument? Try it! Be a beginner and see what calls to you.
One of the secrets to staying young is to always do things you don’t know how to do, to keep learning. ~ Ruth Reichl
Sometimes we stop ourselves from doing new things because we want to do it “right” right away. We’re not willing to be messy or clumsy, or to make mistakes. But trying to always do things right can make us rigid, and never trying something new can keep us isolated in our old routines.
Imagine yourself looking at the world with a beginners mind, and being willing to try new things. This means you are also willing to be messy, clumsy, and imperfect. That’s what beginners do.
