Learning something new not only keeps our energy active but also effects those around us. What have you always wanted to do? Take a dance class, learn to sail, knit a sweater, write, draw, whatever you choose, why not begin today? When we get rid of the fear and the excuses and decide to begin, our lives will be enriched with fun, new friends and the pride of doing something new. Are you willing to try?

I'm a student, why do you presume I have a choice? ;)

I'm always willing to try something new. Our lives would be much more boring if we would do the same things over and over again. I'm constantly looking for challenges. You could miss important opportunities if you can't get rid of the fear of failure. My advice is to go out there and have fun trying. It's better than living with regrets.

Yes, I always want to learn something new. For example, playing the piano and dancing. But I don't have time and mood to learn because I'm so tired after work.

I'm always willing to learn something new. Learning is something that I enjoy doing, which perhaps why I am more than happy to learn something new. I think that learning is fun, or at least can be. I have fun learning.

Pose- I am always willing to learn something new, even when fear decides to raise its head and distract me. Currently I am learning Manderin and Japanese. I have also been studying for the last four years with my husband who teaches Combined Combatives Martial Arts locally. I've earned my first advancement in his system, and it was a long road. I will say that I've enjoyed every part, including being hip tossed even when I fought it. It's never easy to learn what a particular hit, kick, or hold feels like but it is necessary to the training. And it has gotten easier to control my flinch, and stay focused and calm. I also took up learning Norwegian for our Ren Fest times, as my husband learned it and I felt I should as well. I always feel like I'm floundering in languages, but the times when I can repeat something or ask for something perfectly make me feel very proud for staying with the lessons. Namaste-Anora

A bit more than a year ago, I knew nothing about the internet. My daughter reprimanded me for not even trying to learn. She said that I was being left far behind. So I sat down and tried to tinker with what I can muster. Then I got going. It was not as difficult as what it once seemed to be. But I am still a work in progress. My daughter says I am snail paced. Wheww! Whatever! But at least I tried something new.

Hi eileenleyva, Thank you for commenting and your daughter was right about the internet, it's just great. I was retired before I got my first computer and knew nothing about the internet. Now I can't imagine living without it. Blessings.
