Trying new things can definitely be scary. You might want to try a new hobby or try out for a new team or club, but nervously wonder:
“What if I’m not any good at it? What if other kids laugh at me?”
But here’s why trying new things is totally worth it:
Giselle tried something new and loved it! She says:
“When I tried out for cheerleading in 6th grade I was so nervous and worried about not making the team, but in the end I made the squad and it was the best year ever!” -Giselle
So if you’re feeling fearful next time about trying something new, remember to think positively.
Tell yourself, ‘I can do it!’
You can also take baby steps, like trying new foods or a new book series in your school library you’ve never read before.
So what if you do try something but don’t like it? Don’t feel bad if you realize that the new thing is not good for you.
Be proud and pat yourself on the back for trying something new! Then look for something else new you can try.
We want to hear from you! What’s something new you plan to try this school year?
Did you know that you can change the way you think? Everyone has days that they aren’t happy with how they look or how something went. But what would happen if you decided to change the thoughts in your head?
You have the power inside of you to think positive. So, next time you have a negative thought about yourself try to turn it around.
If you choose to focus on bad things then you make yourself feel bad. So take that bad thought and turn it around!
You and only you get to decide how you feel about things. So instead of noticing the bad try to look for the good. Trust us. There is always something good if try to find it.
