Have you ever said to yourself, “I can’t believe I’m doing this right now!”
If so, it’s likely you were doing something new, different, out-of-character, or fun. Sure sometimes it could be said in a not-so-great context but in my experience, the times I’ve said it have usually been times when I was doing something great. I was having fun, learning something, and changing all at the same time.
I recall several times when I’d be driving from tennis tournament to tennis tournament and spontaneously say out loud, “I can’t believe I am driving to a tennis tournament right now!” Ten years ago that’s not something I ever would have said, much less done. It was a great feeling.
I’ve had several other moments like this. For example:
“I can’t believe I’m in this helicopter right now flying over a waterfall on Maui!”
“I can’t believe I’m on a boat about to see the Statue of Liberty!”
“I can’t believe I’m living in Hawaii!”
There are many more.
If you can’t recall saying something like this in the recent past, maybe it’s time to step outside your box and do something so unbelievable that not even you can believe you’re doing it!
