The thought is not new. You have heard it before. But how many of us really do it regularly.What keeps us really alive is learning. Learning happens on its own as we go through life's different experiences and do various things that are to be done. We may not consciously make an effort to learn something new for the sake of learning, regularly.
But in this busy life we may forget the importance of doing new and different things than the one we already know and do. It will do us much good if we regularly stretch ourselves and invest some time to do something new, actually anything from reading about a new subject, trying a new dish, learning a new dance form, wearing something different from routine and the list goes on and on. I would also go on to add being different than our normal self, be a lil more adventurous, talk to a familiar acquaintance, help somebody without any self-interest.
We change a little with each new thing we do or learn. We gain new experiences and never stay the same, always evolving. I make an effort to do something new every fortnight. Even if we can do it every month, we will have 12 new things we did in a year, that certainly makes our life more varied and fun!
See you again when I am finished with the first part of a new book I picked up!
