If At First…..
Do you remember that old saying “If at first you don’t succeed try, try again”? I like to think that way when I take on a new challenge that does not come easily, I’ll definitely try and give it another shot; after all I’ve nothing to lose. I suppose this adds to my “Jane of all trades” personality, even if I’m not accomplished with a particular talent or trade I like to take on a dare and if I happen to have a decent outcome then I’ll add it to my resume (5ker, teddy bear designer, recycler of old furniture, hula-hooper, customer service rep, wannabee writer, healthy cook, etc.).
It is my belief that at any age we can either try or give up it’s in our hands; we are the ones that make the most of it. Ed asks me from time to time if I would go skydiving with him again (he did it once). I don’t have that daredevil quality about me, besides, I don’t like heights, so I will not take on that feat as part of my bucket list of things to do (I’m not a fool). I will take on other unknown tests that keep me grounded, but will shy away from those that require being suspended or watching things below with a bird’s eye view.
As you probably know I am trying my hand at drawing and being a cartoonist. I am aware that it takes years to become a “famous” and celebrated one, but that will not stop me from at least trying, if I fail than so be it, but I have to at least take on that new challenge and give it the old college try. Keep healthy and fit by taking on new endeavors whatever they may be!
