This year, I decided to be more adventurous. This new adventurous me would do the things that I’ve put off doing for years, like learning how to cook. Update, I still don’t belong in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, but next year is looking optimistic. This also welcomed challenges. As a kid, I don’t know if I was afraid of the water or it was a lack of exposure to it but I didn’t know how to swim. Let me just tell you that as clique as it be, anything is possible with dedication. After two years of lessons, I can finally swim. In fact, I am currently learning the last stroke, “Butterfly Stroke”.
Turning this new leaf of life also meant trying things I have no interest in (more on that in upcoming posts). But most importantly, it meant trying things that I thought would be fun. Starting a blog was the first thing that came to mind. Reason being is I love expressing myself. I still keep a diary to log my inner thoughts, achievements, setbacks, lessons learned, etc. Although I love writing in my diary, I think it’s time to start sharing some of my experiences because I feel we could all learn from each other and what better way to share them. I can’t promise you that my blog will be your cup of coffee (see what I did there), but I feel there will be something here for everyone. Hope to see you on this voyage. Welcome to “Detours without Coffee”.
