Charlie’s Bunion

I was on a small kayaking trip when a friend reached out. He asked if I would join him on a hike. At first, my mind immediately thought no. I wasn’t prepared. I had some gear, but no day pack or anything to help me with hiking since I was packed for a kayaking adventure. 

But, when I heard it was Charlie’s Bunion, a place I had been wanting to explore, I hesitantly said yes. While I probably should’ve said no, I ended up having the time of my life. It was a trajectory-changing experience!

The Choice

Throughout life, we will all be faced with small, trajectory-changing decisions. At first, we may not even realize what it is! Like my adventure to Charlie’s Bunion, I’ve realized that there have been many moments in my life where I should’ve said no, but went for it. 

Of course, we should always use common sense. I would never suggest doing something irresponsible or something you’re not completely trained for. I would suggest simply being on the lookout. Notice when new choices come up. If you feel like it’s not something you’d normally do, but there aren’t any inherent risks, it may be worth thinking through a little more.

The Decision

Once you notice that you are being presented with a choice to try something new or slightly out of your typical realm, try saying, “Yes!” There was a client of mine who joined a group training for a big bike race. Immediately, she made it clear that she wasn’t good at biking and that she was only there to support a friend. When I challenged her to give it a try, noting that she wouldn’t regret it, she not only DID IT, but she crossed the finish line with a gleaming smile! 

The Outcome

Just as my former client found a new love for biking that she would have never known, there’s no telling what all could be out there waiting for you. Saying “yes” to getting out of your comfort zone and trying something new can be scary. Your brain may want to say “no”, but the outcome could be something that you never would’ve expected.
