At first glance, giving something new a try may not seem like giving. And, frankly, its not giving in the traditional sense.
But consider that thoughtful giving (as I’ve defined it) requires a modest degree of discomfort because it requires you to briefly break out of your usual habits. Trying something new has the same discomfort.
Also, consider the person asking. If a friend, neighbor, child, or spouse asks you to join them in some new venture, it does require you to give up your time.
Would I consider it giving to just join any random club or try something new? No. But maybe, just maybe, its giving a little bit to go try something new with your partner, parent, friend, or child.
And who knows … maybe I’ll try spinning again.
