Driving home today I was thinking about my new blog on April Adventures and just thought about what it is like to try something new. Something that is out of your comfort zone.
What does that look like for you?
Last year my friend said that 2013 was the year of saying yes for me. So I did.
Courage is the word that described my year. I had to be courage’s.
Was it easy? No but it stretched me, it allowed me to develop new skills to live my days differently and to mix it up a bit.
Since I have become a Chaplain at two beautiful schools I have really been stretched. I am not complaining at all I loved it.
I started with the dunking machine at the school fete oh my goodness that was so scary, but I did it. I screamed the first time that I was dunked and I think I swallowed half of the water. Have you ever tried to recover your breath and you are chocking and spluttering where everyone can see you? Well I tried to do it gracefully. Mmmhh!
Another experience I will share with you is the school camp. If you know anything about me I am not an outdoors girl who likes camping and going in the bush. I also am not very good in finding places likes streets which way to go, I have no sense of direction at all. So you can imagine me with the students being in the bush and doing orienteering with them. We were told by the camp staff not to help them at all while they were trying to find clues in the bush. I didn’t because I cannot read a map very well at all. We did make it back and I didn’t see any goanna’s.
I did go on the flying fox and I loved it. I climbed up the ladder then had to be strapped in and then it was my turn to gently step off and fly across the river. I loved it.
I am so grateful for the adventures that I have been able to go on. I cannot wait for more adventures this year.
Embrace something new.
Have an adventure yourself.
Mix the day up a bit.
See what you discover.
