Life can toss you curve balls on occasion, and those curve balls can sometimes clock you in the head and leave you on the ground and gasping for air.

Not fun.

That is when the “who” you are kicks in. How fast will you get back up, how long till you can breath deep again?

I’m a big believer that the “foundation” you have laid combined with the “team” that you have put together over the years can play a big part in how quickly you get up, dust off and march on. It’s never too late to develop either of those things and I often talk to groups about doing just that.

But over the last couple of years it has come to my attention that being in a “state of mind” that is always moving forward and embracing new ideas and lessons can also play an important role in how you walk, skip, and at times stumble through life.

So I am putting it to the test!

Over the next 52 weeks I will learn a new “skill” every week. I will blog and vlog about my experiences, I will share what I am learning and how it goes. Plus keep track of how this constant learning effects my attitudes in life. There will also be a monthly overview in SNAP Magazine to watch for and support from the amazing crew at 99.9 SUN FM and AM 1150!

I’m kinda scared.

I have read the blogs of others who have tried similar experiments and they mysteriously just stop….

That won’t be me! I’m committed to this experiment and hope you are along for the ride! I am using a few headings.. Sports, Arts, Culinary, Academic, and Random. This will help me choose what I will be doing, have any ideas? Please share! Up for the next 5 weeks we have an “edgy” photo shoot, turning a napkin into a decorative chicken, learning to drive heavy machinery, popping a wheelie on my bike with bunny hops, and mastering the Rubik’s cube!

Ready? Let the adventure begin! It’s time to go Back to School!
