I try to ask my self this question quite often. Unfortunately, I have noticed that our lives usually become a routine, making our life stagnant. Therefore, it is good for us to try new things; as simple as they might seem. We open the door to new opportunities and adventures, only by trying things for the first time. For example, can you remember when you had a first? First kiss, first drive, first day of school, first concert, or first bite of sushi. Remember the adrenaline throughout your body which was mixed in with a little bit of anxiety and fear? Maybe even a little bit of hesitation or resistance at the beginning? The feeling is awesome, and it is something we should continuously be feeling throughout our lives. When we are younger, our lives are filled with plenty of spontaneity; however, as we grow older we tend to conform into a routine, where we do the same things over and over again. It is easy to fall into this trap, so our job is to always look for new things to try. Even just changing the way you drive to school or work, or maybe just trying something new next time you go to your favorite restaurant. Another benefit of consistently trying new things is that it rushes creativity and imagination into our brain. Our brain becomes hit with new stimuli that it has never experienced before. This can bring new ideas and solutions to some of our problems.
Sometimes people don’t like to try new things because:
1. They are scared
2. They might not like it
3. They might fail
4. Think is a waste of time.
5. Are worried about what others say or think
However, we must understand that we actually grow and learn by trying new things. When we are babies we learn by trial and error, if we touch the stove and is hot, we will not touch it again, but we learned the lesson, we got that experience. As adults it is actually no different, we still learn a lot of things by trial and error. So go out there and do some living!

Tip of the week: This week I want you to try something for the very first time. Do something new, do something different. You decide.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?


I have asked myself this question all of my life and now at this current stage in my life, I am 100% convinced that it does. Let’s think about our lives and about all of the stuff we have been through; and all the decisions we have made have led us exactly to the point in which we are right now at this very moment. We have to understand that we are not the victims of our situation; we are the architects of it. We, through our choices, have created our life and are directly responsible of where we are sitting at today.  Think of everything you have gone through and all those goals you have accomplished, and I’m willing to bet those goals were not easy to achieve.  As a matter of fact, think of anything you have accomplished in your life and I bet accomplishing it wasn’t easy; furthermore you shouldn’t be expecting things that are coming into your life to be easy. Is not easy, if it were easy everybody would touch greatness. My intention for this blog is just for you to take some time and as one of my friends said recently, “take time and smell the roses.” Take some time to appreciate and evaluate everything that has happen throughout your life; see what you did right and see what you did wrong, but don’t regret anything, because if you change something from the past your life wouldn’t be how it is now. Also, remember that every time there is a new beginning there is a new hope, a new hope for a new tomorrow. Sometimes when we make those tough decisions to move on in our life we are daring to be great, we are daring to take new steps in our lives, we are daring to have a different life, that’s what we are doing, and that’s what life is about; imagining something greater than us, imagining and daring for a better life. I believe the best is yet to come for all of us and even thought there will be some rocks and stones along the way, just remember if there were no rocks in the stream then the river wouldn’t sing. Thanks for reading, please evaluate your life and don’t look so much to the past, but look inside you and look towards the future. I would like to leave you guys a great quote for adversity, I am going to paraphrase the best I can because I can’t remember it exactly, but it says something like this—Sometimes you don’t know when the storm will hit, when it will actually hit, the damage it will do, or how will you get out of it, but the only thing that is certain is that you are a different person now than when you went in.
