We limit ourselves with preferences.

We all have things we like better than other things: chocolate ice cream versus vanilla, white wine rather than red. We know what we like and often stick with it.

This is fine, as we are likely guaranteed an enjoyable experience. But what if we had never experienced chocolate ice cream? What if we had only known vanilla and strawberry? Our preference for vanilla then might prevent us from ever trying the chocolate flavor.

It’s healthy for us to balance some certainty with uncertainty. When we’re willing to be adventurous some of the time, we expand our horizons. We might even discover a new favorite thing!

Today’s message invites me to explore my possibilities a bit more. When I try new things, I can expand the smorgasbord of experiences I enjoy.

Please reflect and share. What new thing might you try today?
