This New Year, Experience Something New

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Walt Disney

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a rut? Maybe you find yourself doing the same activities day after day. You go to work during the week. You come home and cook and clean. On the weekends, you go to your kid’s hockey game, and then cook and clean some more.

It’s okay. Oftentimes we can be creatures of habit. But, it is a new year. So why not try something new? It could be a sport you’ve never watched, a museum you’ve never visited or taking the time to learn about a new culture.

When you think back to your favorite memories from the past, you’re likely to find that your experiences are far more memorable than the “things” you got. Right? Continue that!

Here are a few events happening out in the community that could lead you to discover a new interest.
