When I was a kid, I loved going to this place called BeeBee Dairy with my grandmother. We’d get clam chowder with soup crackers every time.
Those moments stick. The ones that take you out of your normal day to day and thrust you into something new but just as cozy.
I always try my best to support my family in ways that will make trying new things and new places fun and exciting. New foods, new candies, new playgrounds, and the cool programs they host at the library or just any public space.
It’s so easy to do get swept up in routine and ritual. It’s too easy to get so comfortable that you forget what it means to live.
Then there’s times where new experiences are my life line. When I get into a rut, new experiences bring me back to life and whisk me away from all the problems I have no control over.
So here’s a reminder to you and future me,
Don’t forget to experience new things. Don’t forget to be intentional about having new adventures. There’s so much world out there.
