I still remember the first time I got my guitar. One afternoon I opened the door and I saw my mother standing with a guitar in hand. It was one of the best days of my life. I had absolutely no idea how to use it, but still I started strumming the strings, and I didn’t stop even though the guitar was completely out of tune and had no rhythm. Nothing stopped me because I knew that soon I’m going to learn how to properly play it. This just added to the excitement and I was really happy.
The best time to experience something is when it happens for the first time.
The curiosity to know what happens next, the nervousness and fear of what if something goes wrong and the excitement that something wonderful is going to happen, all these feelings are experienced and all these feelings just add to the joy of that first experience. At times, people don’t have the courage to face the consequence, and they never try to get out of their comfort zone. It is okay to be afraid of new things, but never let that fear take away the best moments of your life from you. If, for the first time you realized that you like someone, let that person know how you feel. Yes, maybe things won’t turn out the way you expected, but at least you would be satisfied that you tried, and even better, what if things do work out! That’s the beauty of new things and first-time experiences. There is no way to know what the outcome could be. The first time you rode a bicycle, the first time you bought a car, the first time you kissed, the first time you held your child in your arms, the first time you bought your own house, the first time you realized you are in love and many more experiences like that will always be in your memory like a never fading story, which will live with you until you die.
The thing about such experiences is that, with age, these experiences change. At one time you were excited about your remote control car, then today you are excited to blast the speaker off of your new car. But then and now, the joy, the nervousness, the excitement, the curiosity are all the same.
In life, you will get many opportunities to do new things, experience something for the first time or start a new chapter of your life. Don’t hesitate to go ahead and give it a try, because who knows, that might turn into the best moment of your life.
