When was the last time you did something for the first time?
When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Routine: A lot of people hold on to it. Work days, planned nights to the gym, social activities and the household in the weekends. Is there something wrong with this? No! Is it boring? Well, it could be.

When was the last time you did something for the first time? Can you even remember? You probably have to dig deep. Challenge yourself and go crazy!

Bucket list
Now that I feel better, energised and have a lot of awesome people around me, I dare to live again. So it is time for a bucket list!
And not only for big things, but also the little things. The little things might even be more special.

A small summary of what I am trying to do now:
-Try new recipes. For Christmas I made a caramel sauce which turned out pretty nice!
-Try different sports. My partner introduced me to cycling. So I got my own bike! And yes, I will continue doing it.
-Yesterday I cut a glass with my hands for the first time, since the machine did not work.
-During my last dance show, I did the perfect turn on one leg, without jumping. I was so proud!
-I realized I reacted wrong on something, from which I thought it was my partner’s fault. I apologized within 5 minutes and realized it was because of my own insecurities. It was good to finally realize that.
-I wrote a blog post for the first time and see where that led to!

Some things I still want to do:
-Travel to Norway. I have been wanting to go there for such a long time and in 5 weeks I will finally go. With the Ford Capri of 1979. New things are scary for me, but I look forward to it and try not to make myself crazy.
-I will start a conversation at work, about getting more hours in my contract.
-I want to change tires of my motorbike myself, with a little help of course.
-Try even more new recipes.
-Get my MBO degree, and I will!
-Skydiving! Creepy, but I have to do it!

Incentives
The things that you do  for the first time mostly stay in your memory. They are either very awkward or they give you self confidence. Either way; you will learn. I hear a lot of people about how they got a boost of doing things more often for the first time! So go pick apples on a sunny day, go picnicking in the park with your friends, brew beer, celebrate your birthday with a big party. And enjoy!

New thing might be scary, but you will always learn something. You will make mistakes, ruin a recipe or get terribly drunk on your own birthday party. But who cares?

The song of this week is Eminem, Walk on water.
