For The First Time

Hello, blogger friends.
I hope everybody had a good weekend.
I feel like I have been a little distracted lately. I keep typing about clothes and what I think about the clothes but I never actually talk.. Is that even make any sense? 

Anyway, when was the last time you did something for the first time? It doesn't have to be big. Maybe the first time you successfully tackle that parallel parking. Or like me, presenting for XG News video for the first time. Which was weird and awkward but still, fun and a learning experience anyway.

There's a thrill when you are doing something for the first time. You don't know what you're doing. You don't know what's gonna happen. And you might even feel that old pal of fear creeping in. Most of the time people avoid things that they don't know. As humans, we are attracted to the familiar things in life because it's safe and we are just camping around in our comfort zone. And it's a trap. Trust me, comfort zone is scary because it feels and looks safe but it's actually keeping you away from all the things God has prepared for you. So yes, do things for the first time anytime you can. If it's not life threatening or against the law, by all means, do it.

First time baking that challenging Opera cake, first time camping under starlights, first time trotting that 15 centimeters high heels, first time you kiss, first day at work, or simply the first time you listened to one whole CD without pressing that next button! My point is, life is too short to not doing things. Most people I know regret things they didn't do and laugh off the silly or even the big mistakes they did in the past. has great tips when you are doing something for the first time. 1) Ditch the perfection! It's your first time, perfection is second. 2) Forget what others think. People are actually kinder than your brain thinks, when you are open about your inexperience, they will actually encourage you. 3) The time you spend doesn't matter. You are learning. Remember when you're a kid? Your mom was so patient teaching you all those alphabets. Give yourself a break. 4) Plan and prepare. If possible, plan and prepare as much as you can. You will gain more self-confidence! 5) Prepare for the second time. It doesn't hurt to take notes!
So might this Monday to come, we all will try something for the first time!
Do tell me what was the last time you did something for the first time? Or even better, your plan of doing something for the first time! :)

  2. First of all, your girly style is something I could never pull off, but you look wonderful!

    As for something new, I'm applying to be teaching abroad somewhere this year, so that will be a bunch of new things at once: leaving home, leaving the country, working abroad, etc. I'm a little nervous, but not enough to let that hold me back from submitting the best application possible!

  3. I love this post SO much! You look gorgg in those heels and lovely outfit. First times are always good, they push you to grow!! Some of my firsts this year have included a sushi-making class and making a birdhouse :-)
