Writing Prompts: First Times

What could you try for the first time?

I bet you all had a different idea as to where this post was going. Shame on you!

There’s a first time for everything, and given how many different activities and experiences there are in this world, there’s a good chance we all have stuff on our bucket lists we haven’t tried, but would like to. For the record, I do not want to skateboard, because I have woeful coordination, but there are plenty of things I’d like to try.

For instance, I sometimes wonder what it would be like to try meditation. Would it be a bad thing to soothe this meerkat’s oft-erratic mind?

Let’s get centred!

Would I be able to find my inner peace, so to speak? I honestly have no idea what it would take, so this would require some research. Nor do I know if I will find the time to give it a proper go. Still, there’s no harm in having a go, right?

There’s lots of other stuff I haven’t done. I have never – and do not desire to – gone bungee-jumping. I have never – and wouldn’t mind trying – going up in a hot air balloon. I would love to travel first-class on a train ride from London to Scotland (I’ve more or less done that journey in standard class, but wouldn’t first class be special?). Sometimes, I think it would nice to follow in my father’s footsteps, and see New York City.

Some of these desires are more feasible than others. The most achievable would be meditation. After all, this can be done at home. The others all involve money!

That’s something I’d like to try: being a millionaire. Anyone want to make that happen?
