Today was the first time in my life that I made popcorn on my own.
That brings me to something; when was the last time you did a thing for the first time in your life? When was the last time you tried new skill, a new recipe, a new whatever in your life?
If you are always doing, what you already can, you will always be what you already are.
Popcorn of course isn't complicated or risky, but it serves well enough as metaphor.
