JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 361 :: joy is making gnocchi

27 Dec


I drew a card today that said: “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” It’s a good question. I had to stop and think about it but I still drew a blank. 

When was the last time you did something new? 

The good thing about NEW is it usually brings me joy. The novelty and the adventure of newness mix with joyfulness to create the thrill of trying something for the first time. The moment gets seared into muscles and brain fibers to create a lasting memory. Like riding a bike, traveling to a new place, learning to surf, ski, or play anything, really.

But new doesn’t happen very often in our overscheduled lives. 

The good news is later tonight we all made gnocchi. From scratch. At the direction of Brian with step by step helpful instructions. It turned out great and tasted fantastic. And for me, it was something new.

Which brought me joy.  

As we sit on the edge of the precipice of the New Year I am thinking about what’s new that would be fun and adventurous to do. 

What’s something new that you want to do?

More tomorrow…
