Restore...Renew Week 4, Day 6: Try it!

I am sure, just like me, you have often thought of trying a new hobby.  The desire to learn something new, to discover fresh ideas or be creative stirs within most people some or other time in their lives.  However, we often believe that we are too old, too busy,too financially disadvantaged or simply not talented enough.  These are all excuses we hide behind because we are afraid to try something new and then maybe not get it right.  Today I want you to write down a list of five things you have thought of  doing or learning, but have used some of these excuses not to do it.  Next to these five things I want you to write down the reason why you have not been doing them.  Now ask yourself which one of these things you would really like to do, if you did not hide behind this excuse.  Good.  Now I want you to go and gather as much information about this as you can and armed with this knowledge, I want you to commit to this one thing this year.  Maybe you have always wanted to do woodcarving, well now is the time to do it.  Crochet?  There are hundreds of internet sites that will teach a beginner the basic stitches, and there are usually clubs in most towns that will welcome a new comer with open arms.  Maybe you would love to do music, mosaic or learn to ride a horse.  Don't put it off any longer, now is THAT time!  The present time.  This is the time we have.
