Not all first times are created equal. That’s for sure. There are a few that stand out for me – the first time I took my driver’s license and rolled back on the incline start. Blind. The first time I ran 10km and couldn’t move for three days. The first time I had to break up with a boyfriend, or be broken up with; and then the first five post-break kilograms that I had to work off. The first time I took a real hard look at my spending habits. The first time I applied for a bond. The first time I asked for a raise.
