Tuesday Thrills #1


I have decided to create a little weekly post called Tuesday Thrills! Every Tuesday I will be posting about delightful, exciting or new things that have happened or will be happening in my life. 
Now I understand that it can be a little boring just reading about what i've been up to, so my aim is to try and pass some of these thrills onto you in anyway I can. 

I thought I would kick-start my Tuesday Thrills off with a boost of friendly encouragement. Tomorrow I will be starting at a brand new university where I will be studying full-time for a whole year...and I don't know anyone. (gulp!)
Ask me a couple of months ago how I felt about this and I would have shouted from the rooftops with great excitement, but now I know I start tomorrow, it's a completely different story as i'm a tad nervous to say the least!

I will be training as a teacher and I am delving into the complete unknown. But instead of being scared to start this new chapter in my life, i've decided to hold on tight and jump straight in!

Jennifer DeDonato, 2011 

The quote above seems very fitting and i've read, re-read and read it some more. 

Don't be afraid to take the first step into something unknown-a new school, new job, even a new relationship-because if you don't give it ago, you will never know what is waiting for you on the other side. It could be a great sense of achievement, an overwhelming feeling of happiness, maybe even a new friend!
You never know unless you try, and that is the motto I will be sticking with when I wake up tomorrow morning. 

So if anyone else is stepping into the unknown, go for it! It may just be the opportunity you have been waiting for.

But this post has definitely made me understand and realise that even if you have to take one wary step, you can get so far! You have gained a new follower!

  27. I love the idea of the 'series' ^^ it can really be helpful. sometimes, esp when something big is changing, i tend to feel scared and i'm too shy to tell my friends i feel like crying every 3 minutes. but your message is empowering ^^ thank you
