Trying New Things

01 Aug

photo 3 (10)I’m a creature of habit. I know what I like, and I’m comfortable with that. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 😉   But every once in a while, I step out of my comfort zone and try something new.

Yesterday was my birthday, and hubby planned to take me out to eat before we shopped for new boots. He was in the mood to try something different from the restaurants where we normally eat. Naturally, we Googled our options photo 1 (12)in the area we were headed to and decided on an authentic German restaurant. I sampled new-to-me types of sausages and ate an outstanding reuben on pumpernickel bread. Sauerkraut has never been my thing (mostly because I’d never tried it) but I love it! Long story short, I’m hooked on something new.

I usually find when I step out of my comfort zone into the unknown it’s not as bad as I thought it would be, and sometimes I even like it. How much I miss by not being more brave.

    An authentic Reuben. That had to be delish! I haven’t tried Indian food yet, but that would definitely be stepping out of my comfort zone.

    I didn’t like sauerkraut when I was a kid, but love it now. In fact, I’ll be shredding cabbage and getting it in a crock later this week! It’s easy to make and homemade tastes even better. 🙂

    I’m like you, Candice. Once I try something new I usually like it, but I have to get past my fear first!
