I am not great at trying new things, to be honest. I like routine, I like patterns, and I am a big fan of my comfort zone. Still, sometimes you just have to give something a go and do the best you can. You might be pleasantly surprised by the results. However, the story below is not about me at all.
This summer, my son worked at his first summer job. He was hoping to get an internship in the district attorney's office, and when that did not work out, he found a new job in a matter of days. While Max loves acting in his school plays, he knew nothing about set design. But that is where his help was needed, so he and his employer took the risk. And guess what? He was pleasantly surprised by the results. (I got to sit back and feel proud.)
Everybody has to be new at something some time, so whether it happened recently, or long ago; whether it happened to you, or someone else, what stories can you tell about "trying something new?"
