Do you like to try new things?

It is often said that at the end of our lives we are more likely to regret the things we did not do than the things we did. Have you ever felt that you wanted to try something but was talked out of it by family or friends? When we are contemplating whether or not to do something, we may hear a voice within our head "you never know unless you try". Even if it doesn't turn out the way we'd hoped, we will have learned something. This can be applied to both large and small situations whether it's Bungee jumping or trying a new food. Are you one to hesitate or "go for it"?

a risk-taker, i guess. i love to do new things. especially love doing them either with family or friends. i was afraid of heights and so went mountain climbing. even afraid to go deeper so i went to scuba diving. afraid to have a very short hair so had it semi bald! the point is, i tried to overcome the "what ifs". best of all, my family and friends were very supportive. and yes, am thinking of the bungee jumping, haha! ü

I love to try new things. But I also have this huge fear of heights that makes me hesitate with huge tall activities. But I am not usually one to hesitate when something new comes up. I love to just "go for it" and see what the resuslt is going to be. God Bless.

Hi eternal_ink, Thank you for your comment and I too have always had a fear of heights. It's been said,"do the thing that you're afraid to do and your fear will vanish", and although I've found it to be true for many things, I just can't seem to stand more than a few feet from the ground. Blessings.

Hello Pose. I think that I do like to try new things as they can always give me some inspirations. I love to learn something new so long as it is positive and good to us. To learn something makes us young in mind. I have been learning new things from my students as always. They are a good source of learning something new. Take care, friend.

Hi williamjisir, Thank you for responding. You mention learning new things from your students, I've always found that we can learn from everyone and as you say, it does keep us young. I feel that I have learned a great deal from the friends that I have met here on myLot and continue to do so. As we think about the questions often put to us in discussions, it keeps us asking why, which in turn keeps us young at heart. Blessings.

I do take calculated risks in life. Yet, I feel I have missed a lot in life. If only I could go back to the start of my career, I would play differently this time. hmmmmm, that is just not possible.

That has never happened to me, because I don't let people talk me into or talk me out of anything, and if I think that they are going to give me a lot of trouble about something I'll do it anyway, and not tell them I've done it, until after the fact. Why talk about something that is only going to cause them to give me a lot of grief? If I tell them after, they can't nage me because i ddi it, and I succeeded.
