When is the Last Time You Did Something for the First Time?

When is the last time you did something for the first time?

Yes. That question stopped me too. 

I first heard this last Spring on a podcast and it just stuck. Really stuck. 

As much as I'd like to say I'm the adventurous type, I had fallen into a rut. I bet you've been there too. So I tried something new and challenging and very public and guess what?  I DID IT! 

I made this video right after that new thing, and in the spirit of resolutions and goals and challenges, I want to share it with you.  

And I leave you with this-- What will YOU do in 2017 for the first time?

Here's to a healthy, happy, EXCITING, New Year!

xoxo, Stephenie
