“30 Days New” – Day 7
Yesterday’s “New” happened without me realizing it until late in the day.
I love PBS, but do not watch their programs as often I would like. I have the time and the access, but for some reason I simply do not do it. Earlier in the week I DVR’d a number of episodes of one of their mystery programs. Yesterday I binged on two of the series’ two hour episodes.
I loved the show, but that was just the icing on the cake. What excited me was I was enjoying something new, without even consciously planning it to be a “New”. Seems “News” may be becoming a normal part of my life after only a week!
Writing about my Day 7’s activity reminded me of my 20+ year habit for ordering a new magazine almost every year that showcase topics I know little or nothing about. Popular Science, Wyoming Magazine, and Architectural Digest have all crossed my threshold at one time or another along with many other unrelated titles. Sometimes, I enjoy a magazine and reorder it; other times I read an issue or two and donate the rest to a local library. I believe the money is well spent under any circumstances because reading the magazines exposes me to new ideas and information, and perhaps even sparks a new interest, which is most often the case.
Do you have a regular “New” that relates to exposing yourself to new ideas or concepts, or even new forms of entertainment? If so, share what you have discovered along the way.
Day 7 Result – Surprise, enjoyment and a continued sense of excitement for “News” big or small.
