same dish. trying to be fresh.

When I was a child, I thought I'd be a celebrity and was always worried that I would have to answer the same questions over and over again when doing that whole talk show circuit promoting my latest big movie release. While watching the daytime dudes and the late night machine, I notice the same people that were on the morning shows, also drop by the night shift. And, as you guessed, the same questions are asked. Same answers are given. Of course, there's a bit more thinking behind the later answers with a little more umms and uhhs and maybes but basically, you got the same ball thrown to you. Repetition in life is sometimes good. It's just when it starts to become mundane and predictable is when it gets unbearable.

The lesson of the weekend: Every day try something new while doing the same thing. Continuing with your routine but giving it new life. If you have tea, try a new brand. If you go for a jog every morning, try a new path. As we grow older and the days get faster and we get bored quicker, it's easy to give up and just stay on the same road. That's how we grow old fast. Take your life to the next level. If you feel risqué, try a whole new schedule throwing out the old one. Repetition could be a good dish, as long as you sprinkle some new seasonings on the plate at times to freshen it all up. And that's what it's all about. To always be fresh.
