- Trying something new opened a flood gate of courage in me.
- Trying something new showed me I could enjoy something new; something previously off my radar!
- Trying something new took me out of the safety of my routine (not that there's anything wrong with a routine) and stretched my ability to trust -- others AND myself.
- Trying something new forced me to grow. In the words of Alex Lickerman: We don't ever grow from taking action we've always taken (the growth that enabled us to be able to take it has already occurred). Growth seems to require we take new action first, whether it's adopting a new attitude or a new way of thinking, or literally taking new action. Thrusting yourself into new situations and leaving yourself there alone, so to speak, often forces beneficial change. A spirit of constant self-challenge keeps you humble and open to new ideas that very well may be better than the ones you currently hold dear (this happens to me all the time)
- Trying something new was a confidence builder for me.
- Trying something new stretched me mentally and physically. I don't want to shrink but expand!
- Trying something new helps me remember my Heavenly Father is always up to New Things!

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun!
Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
