Trying New Things


Today is a special day, I’m thankful to God to celebrate another birthday. Whoa! Each year I become reflective and set a plan to live better that year; however, this year I want to intentionally try new things every week. I haven’t decided what things, specifically, I’ll do yet, but I know new experiences, cultures, foods and destinations await, while keeping my options open.

This is what I did today…..

I love, love movies and I usually go to the movie theater at least three to four times a month or catch movies on DVD. The past few months I haven’t been able to get out to theater like I really want, but today that changed. I had my own movie marathon. I went to the “dollar theater” and caught up on a few movies. It was great; I laughed; I cried, but most importantly I had fun. For less than $5.00 I saw three movies, the animated movie Home @ 12 noon; had a quick-lunch at Chick-fil-A then back to the theater  Pitch Perfect 2 @ 2 o’clock and finished it off with Fast and Furious 7 @ 3:55 p.m. Movies 10 7.16.15 Movies 10 tix 7.16.15 Is there something new you want to try? How about making it happen sooner than later?

Casually speaking and all the best,
