Do you guys watch Casey Neistat?
Well, I do sporadically but one thing I don’t do sporadically is look for morning inspiration. Just so happens his latest video showed up on my YouTube feed today and I watched it over my morning coffee. I was skipping around in it and paused to watch a portion and like that magic I talked about yesterday … it was THE inspiration I needed for TODAY!
He post a picture of this quote and said a few words about it.
“There’s no reason to stop. If you’re constantly thinking new thoughts and dealing with new problems, it refreshes your brain cells and makes new connections.”
This was from a man still performing brain surgeries (I believe it was…sorry, I don’t have the exact info!!!) well into his 70s.
Well, guess who else that reminded me of. Bob Scott. My Ironman BFF at 86 who still competes. People ask me all the time why he still competes and I always respond why not? It keeps him active and he loves it. Period.
Casey then went on to say that is something that intrigued him about a daily vlog. That by constantly creating something new every single day, it kept him constantly thinking and the brain going.
It was like the words flowing from my mind put into words.
I love to create. I love to be constantly thinking. I love that daily challenge to CREATE something new. It doesn’t have to be large but I love to bring something into existence. Even just a thought.
I have been toying with a personal challenge to blog every single day in September. CREATE a new post. Like I said, in a previous post I even found a cool writing challenge that I may do on here.
I just convinced myself over my last sip of coffee. Yup. Every day in September I am going to write here. I never set out for this blog to make money or pitch other people’s products. This is personal. This blog began years ago and I recommitted to it in January to create a personal habit and a place to express myself. I think the habit took and here I am entering September and have been pretty damn consistent.
Creating a new post daily.
It goes along perfectly with my Meditation Group’s theme of CREATIVITY for the month of September.
So here we go!!!! YAY! A new resolve. I like to be continually finding new ways to challenge myself.
HERE is the blog post that had the
