Just trying to change the world, one blogpost at a time.

31 December 2016


I will try new things.

"There are usually amazing things waiting for us in the realms beyond what we know."

We are not all daredevils. Some people relish off the adrenaline that comes from change whilst others much prefer the comfort of what is familiar to them. Both absolutely fine, but, regardless of which category you fall into, being open minded to new things is essential. If you walk the exact same path, day after day, year after year, how can you expect anything different to happen?

New things don't have to come in crazy packages. Bungee jumping, sky diving, swimming with sharks; if these things interest you then by all means go out and do them but it's definitely not by force. Travel is one thing I think everyone should experience in some form. I know people who genuinely have no interest in it but I think it's one of those things that can really change the way you see things. When I say travel though I don't mean go to another country just to do exactly the same thing you'd do at home. I mean experience the culture, try and pick up a few words of the language, visit places of significance and find out what's so special about them; take it all in. The world is so much bigger than the city you're in, which means there are countless opportunities to learn something new.

Engage with different people. Having an established group of friends that you can lean on is great and necessary to get through this thing called life but don't be completely closed to the idea of adding new people to the mix. You may find that someone who is completely different to you and the people you're used to hanging out with may be able to offer a perspective or advice that other people can't. Everyone has a different story, a different series of paths that led them to where they are now, find out about the people around you - perhaps they've gone through something you're struggling with now, maybe they have the same desire as you to do something and you can collaborate or help each other out. New acquaintances can be useful, you never know, 5 or 10 years down the line they might be in a position to help you out! In the same token, be open with what you have learnt along the way, you might be able to put someone on.

Whether its food, hairstyles, sports, hobbies; the list of new things to try is endless. Don't be the person who says 'I wish I could do that,' find a way to do it! That said, you have to want to try these things, make sure you never let anyone pressure you into doing anything you don't want to.

Go forth and make your life an adventure; you do only get one after all.

Stay Blessed,
Selorm xo.
