A small step out of my small box

Today, I took a little step out of my small and safe box and did something a little daring. I have to say I'm not much of a risk taker and most people in my life know that well. But today, I went to a friend's gig. A male friend whom I only met once at another friend's birthday last month.

I wasn't sure if that was the right thing to do, let alone safe. I mean, I hardly know the guy and yet I'm attending his gig that's all the way in Sydney. More than an hour's worth of travelling on my part. It was also at night and finished late. But I have to say, I ignored my usual logical and wimpy thoughts and attended. It was absolutely wonderful. I haven't had so much fun in ages.

I'm so glad I went. I heard some really good amateur bands play and met new people. I'm finally doing things a little out of my character and taking steps on moving forward. I'm enjoying my life. And I'm happy with the choices I've made thus far. Even if I made a few mistakes. I'm happy because those decisions gave me opportunities to meet wonderful people and made me who I am now.

It's almost time. It's almost time for me to say it.

i should follow your example and step outside my little comfort box and try something new. i try to do that every once in a while. it keeps me learning.

@scattered-strings: Yeah, I'm so glad I followed my impulse.
@Vencora: Yes, doing new things keeps you learning. You can't learn by doing the same things all the time.
