When was the las time you started something new? A new sport, craft or learning a new language can open up a world of possibilities, stretch your brain and introduce new ways of thinking. Many times, we don’t start new things simply because it’s hard to start something new. It takes work and time we may not feel we have. The rewards, however, are often more than worth it.
At the end of last summer, I started taking yoga classes. At first, it was just for exercise, but I got obsessed quickly. I started going to classes almost every day and reading books about the non-physical aspects of yoga. It was an amazing time. Finding something you love and being in that honeymoon stage is exhilarating. I was reminded of this the other day when I took a beginner yoga class and the teacher spoke briefly about how she loves teaching beginners because they’re still in that overly-excited always-learning stage. It made me think about learning to weave and how fun it is for me to hear from new Mirrix owners going through the excitement of weaving their first pieces and realizing the possibilities. Here are five reasons you’ll love (and benefit from) starting something new (like weaving)!
1.) The beginning can be the most exciting place.
It’s exciting and invigorating to start something new. You get to experience that “honeymoon” phase, which is always lots of fun.
2.) Starting something new gets you thinking in new ways.
Creativity comes in many different forms and beginning something new often sparks it. You never know the possibilities until you begin!
3.) At the beginning, you have everything in front of you.
It’s a great place to realize all the possibilities you have in front of you. From new poses in yoga to new projects and techniques in weaving, the beginning reveals all the fun ahead.
4.) Learning something new is good for your confidence.
Every new skill you learn can boosts your confidence, and who doesn’t like that?
5.) Learning something new gives you a new perspective.
The more skills we learn and experiences we have, the more perspectives we can see the world from.
