When was the last time -

Mar 18th 2013 new

When was the last time someone suggested you something that required you to do something different in your life and you did it?

Could be really simple, like someone tells you about a new place to eat and you go try it. Could be really complex, like getting a divorce.

But you have to have done what they suggested. Could be anybody.

I am not asking what it was, just when.

For me, what comes to mind was about 3 years ago.

My friend Sue suggested she come over Saturday and have dinner with me. We did, it was her idea, but I guess that didn't count because it wasn't different enough. People come to my house all the time.

Could be God telling you.

I am just curious, how about you?

I think that I'm usually the instigator, or the one coaxing someone else to do something adventurous.

I'm with you, Marge. I'm always encouraging people to try new things - and I actually take my own advice! I love to learn and explore, so I guess it comes naturally. Even when it comes to trying new foods, I'm always telling people not to wrinkle up their nose until they've tried it, "because you never know, (I tell them) this might be your newest favorite food!" I guess I figure you only go around once, and although I'm not exactly a dare devil, I don't want to waste any of the precious sands that God has put in my hour glass. Heck, I've been up in a hot air balloon and down in a submarine. goldfish I've even moved to a new country once that I hadn't even heard of until a few weeks before, without knowing anyone or having a home or job lined up for myself a head of time. (Probably the best 4 years of my life, thus-far, as it turned out.) Perhaps there are times when I can get a little carried away with my leaps of faith crossfingers but at least I hope not to look back on my life with a bunch of 'what ifs'.


I guess the last time I actually did something per someone else's request and I was less than fired up about it was a couple of years ago at a work Christmas party and it involved Karaoke. santahat Nuff said!

Someone told me I should take a cruise so I did.. I learned not to take a brief nap while your companions are setting up day trips for the next day. The next morning I was being handed a ticket to go snorkling in the ocean. My snorkling experience was limited to 3 feet of water on the beach the day before.. wide eyed

And lest you think Marge was kidding when she said she is the instigator.. The ticket for the snorkling went from her hand to mine.. rolling eyes
