We learn by trying new things. Life gets stagnant, staying in our lane on cruise control.
Stepping outside our comfort zone is, well...uncomfortable, which is why many prefer to live a life where today reflects yesterday, and yesterday reflects the day before.
But what happens when something piques our interest?
When an idea pops into our mind, and we get excited?
The mind strengthens with new connections as learning is good for the brain.
I recently came across this picture, and it reminded me of a time in my life where I planted a garden.
I had no clue what I was doing.
But I loved reading books about gardening, scouring websites of what's best to grow for homemade salsa, and finding natural ways to keep bunnies and deer from eating my fruits and vegetables.
The garden was a labor of love.
But at the end of the season, the garden gifted me sunflowers, glass gem corn, and enough veggies to make salsa and feed a small community.
If life seems to be playing the same record on repeat, get hopping to learn a new skill or find a new hobby.
You never know what can happen if you try.
