I believe I have written before about the importance of experiences. One could argue that experience is the meaning of life. Especially to those who are new to living, such as myself, the quality and frequency of new experiences play a vital role in in who that person eventually becomes and how they handle the world at large. The importance of exposure to diverse and foreign experiences to our young people is one of the many reasons I find the current public education system woefully inadequate as students are instead endlessly exposed to monotony.
I’ve found myself wrapped into a safe and familiar sequence of experiences of late and I think it’s not good for me. Thus, I am resolving to add another activity to my daily routine. I intend to experience something new, and perhaps scary, everyday. By doing so, I wish to expand my comfort zone and increase the number of perspectives with which I can empathize. These new experiences can be big or small but I would like to have one at least once a day.
