I read this quote yesterday that really resonated with me.
Never be afraid to try something new because
life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.
Last weekend, I tried something new – emceeing.
It’s been 10 years since the last time I was on stage, and I had missed many things about standing in front of an audience and performing. I was very active in speech and drama, and being a DJ was one of my biggest dreams. So when Shan texted me saying that she was looking for an emcee for her company event, I jumped on the opportunity, despite not having any experience in emceeing.
What a great afternoon it was, and nothing is more gratifying than people telling me that I was good, that they loved my voice. It was new, but it was life. The nervousness before going up and standing in front of strangers, the sense of ease after a while, and then the enjoyment of just doing. I felt like, maybe, my dream is still alive.
I have been trying many new things recently, especially in the arts and crafts department. Generally, it has made me feel more contented about my life. I have been thinking about the kind of content I want to write on my blog and this is it – it’s going to be about all the new things that I will keep trying to try.
