Have you ever been afraid to try something new?


a new food?
a new sport?
a new activity?

New things can be scary, but they can also be wonderful once you give them a try.


…make new friends if you didn’t walk up and say, “Hi, let’s play ” or  meet your favorite teacher if you were afraid to go to a new school on the first day or learn that you were an incredible you if you didn’t give yourself the chance to try new things?


Without trying, we become stuck inside who we are today and miss out on knowing what we might become, who we could meet or where we may end up tomorrow. The more you try, the more you will learn, especially if you make mistakes along the way. The more you learn, the more you will grow, and the more you grow, the more you will become the person you are meant to be.
