The first time you have to have a difficult conversation at work can be very stressful.

The first time you go for a run after a long period of inactivity can be very painful.

The first time you try to prepare a meal using a new recipe can be very inefficient.

The first time you change a nappy can be very messy.

But the second time around is a little easier.

Less stressful.

Less painful.

less inefficient.

Less messy.

But to get there you need the courage to try it the first time.

And the resilience to try it again.
