New and refreshing

Experiencing something new and different can often have a tremendous positive impact in many areas of your life. When you’re stuck in a rut the world can look rather dismal. A fresh new experience can energize and motivate you, clear your mind, brighten your outlook, and open you up to new possibilities.

Curiously, experiencing something new can also help you to appreciate what you already have. Even when you go on the most wonderful vacation, for example, it still feels good to get back home.

Though travel can be a great, stimulating, positive experience, there are also plenty of new things to experience without ever leaving town. You can volunteer your time to help a service organization, visit an art museum, attend a live sporting event, get to know someone new or have a long visit with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. The possibilities are endless.

Keep in mind that life is for living and experiencing. Keep those new experiences coming, and it will help you to be your very best.

— Ralph Marston
