Thursday Thoughts: Try New Things!


I love stories about people who have discovered hidden talents, or who have found new hobbies.  Whether a child prodigy or Grandma Moses, a medal winner or a novice, joy comes from the challenge of a new project.

My dad recently told me that my mom is researching bicycles.  I don't remember ever seeing her ride a bike, but she has set a goal to participate in a little triathlon next year.  So, of course, that necessitates buying a bike (not to mention becoming comfortable swimming).

Way to go, Mom!

What new activity would you like to try?

Thanks for a mom who sets a great example of lifelong learning and active living.

  1. How wonderful for your Mom to still be so very active! A triathlon? WOW! I wish her all the best of luck in her training and competition.

  2. Way to go MOM!!! Love that, people who trie new things.
    I try to learn one new thing every year. Mostly on the creative side, but I want to learn how to weld too one day.
    You are never to old to learn new things, are you?!
