What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
I think everyone should live in a different part of the country or world at least for a year. Your horizons will be changed forever. Everyone needs to get out of their "comfort zone" and learn how others live.
Everyone needs to hold a tiny baby at least once. There is something so pure, so fragile, so precious and innocent about a baby. It can scare the shit out of you and also leave you in awe.
I think everyone should stay up all night to witness the sunrise.
At least once everyone needs to try something they didn't think they could do, especially if it scares them. It is amazing to find out that you can.
Stand up to authority because you know you are right and acting morally, even though it could cost you dearly. If you do it once, it gets easier to do, and you make a difference.
When I was a high school teacher, I led a movement that got an incompetent principal fired -- and survived. Well over 10 years later, I had started a staff development center serving 12 rural school districts and contrary to my boss, believed that the program should change its focus and he was about to recommend that my program and my job be discontinued. I went to the 12 superintendents and asked them what they would want my program to do and let them and proposed to them a new program of services responsive to their goals. The superintendents were my controlling board. When the time came. They voted 11 to 1 to continue by center, and ,y job and to move it in the directions I proposed. We did some great things later, as a consequence.
I could give other examples. Have the courage to stand up.
