Being a beginner at something
Keeps us humble
And can bring us joy
Joy of discovering something new
Joy of progress
And seeing things unfold

Being a beginner at something
Requires courage
We have to accept the awkwardness
The imperfections
The beginnerness!

Practice is needed
Perseverance is required
We won’t start perfect
Or even satisfactory
Need to be patient
Need to be kind to ourselves
Laugh at the mistakes
We will improve eventually!

Being a beginner
No expectations!
Doing something for pure joy!
Taking a chance
Jumping off
And getting out of
Our comfort zone!
