Over the past few years life has become somewhat routine, punctuated with brief moments of fun – the annual holiday, the odd family activity. Like many people I’ve slipped into a routine of work, home, cook, housework, look after the family, sleep, repeat – living for the weekend before starting the same old thing over again. But not anymore.

Someone once said ‘the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results (and no, it wasn’t Albert Einstein). While this may not be the literal definition of insanity, the point is valid – if you want your life to change, you need to do something different. With this in mind, I have decided it is time for me to do something different. And so 1NewThing.com was born.

With this blog I intend to chart my adventures, trying 1 new thing every day. There is no restriction on what the new thing will be, it could be an activity, a journey, trying a new food (frogs legs anyone?). The only criterion is that it must be something I haven’t done before.

I invite you to come on this journey with me. Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone, do something new. I’d love to hear about your experiences so feel free to share them, along with any comments or suggestions you may have.

Here’s to a happy and rewarding 2017!
