I did a thing this weekend.
I’ve been toying around with shaving my beard for a while. I’ve had some kind of facial hair for 10 years and wanted to see what it would be like to go around clean shaven for a while.
I felt really nervous about shaving my beard off. Having a goatee or a beard has become part of who I am. It’s been weird seeing my reflection without it. I’m still getting used to the look and feel, which is a really weird thing to say about my own face.
I’m not sure if this will be my new look or if I’ll grow some form of beard back. I need to test drive this for a while. (Another weird thing to say about my face.)
But I think it’s good to try new things, even if you don’t stick with it long-term. You never know what new thing – even if it’s an old thing you haven’t done in a long time – can add value and bring joy to your life. Change can be hard, but every good thing you’ve ever had in your life is a result of change.
Don’t be afraid to try something new. It could lead to the next great thing in your life.
QUESTION: What’s something new that you’ve been thinking about trying?
