When was the last time you tried something for the first time?
Well, my last ‘first time’ moment was on the weekend when I tried archery and let’s just say…I LOVE IT!
Mr. G and I went away for the weekend for some unwind time in the country. I saw that they offered some different activities and one caught my eye, archery.
When we started walking over to the archery area I remember saying to Mr. G ‘Oh, I’m not so sure about this anymore. Why did I book this again?’
Well, after my first few goes, that thought was completely out the window and I found myself trying to perfect my stance and shot. I amazed myself with the fact that I could actually aim and that I could actually get the arrow in the circle, on the blue and red circles as a matter of fact. Pretty good for a first timer I thought.
I kept adding arrow after arrow to my bow, feeling like I was on the set of a Lord of the Rings movie with the rolling countryside in the background. I tilted my wrist, changed my angle and then pulled the bow back with my fingers, getting arrow after arrow firmly projecting into the board. I wasn’t as uncoordinated as I thought.
I wanted to keep on going for the rest of the afternoon but didn’t want to hold the lady up that instructed us. I had found something else I loved.
‘Do you think we could set one of these up in our backyard?’ I asked Mr. G. Probably not the smartest question I’ve asked.
It reminded me again how important it is to give things a go, to take risks, because with these risks great things appear on the other side.
So, what was the last thing you tried for the first time? How did it go?
