Do you remember your first kiss? The excitement. The nervousness. The curiosity. All of it leading up to a pivotal moment in your life. Those types of moments are hard to forget.
That’s how you should feel whenever you start something new, whether it’s a project, job or relationship. Those “firsts” should be memorable because you are excited, nervous, and curious about where things might lead.
Because if not, what’s the point? If you aren’t excited about becoming healthier as you start your new exercise regimen; if you don’t feel nervous about the new promotion you just received; if you aren’t the least bit curious about how a new relationship (platonic or otherwise) might pan out–what’s the point of even doing it? Instead, find something that does make you feel that way.
Life is short, be doing something memorable.
