365 Challenge: Day 251 – Bounce

Posted on

Bounce: (of an object, especially a ball) move quickly up, back, or away from a surface after hitting it; rebound (once or repeatedly)


Every once in a while, when I wake up, I have little to no energy or clever ideas for the 365 Daily Challenge. Today is one of those days where I know it would be better to just put out a brief message rather than spend an hour coming up with a really strong one. Just bounce with it for me, will ya? Lately, my mind feels like all it does it bounce from one activity to the next, which is a good thing in many ways. The days go by quickly and I see a lot accomplished during that time. We all feel like that on occasion, so I’m glad to be in great company with all of you.

I talked about potential words with two friends today (Roda & Noriko), who both helped provide some ideas and/or conversation that generated a few good options. In the end, most of them required more thought before I could truly post anything valuable. Instead, I looked up images of things bouncing all around to amuse myself and that’s when I decided today’s word would be ‘bounce.’ We all need those moments of downtime, don’t we? When we do something silly like play with a bouncing ball or jump up and down just for the fun of it. I think I’ve figured out what I need to do at the gym later on… that said, today’s only potentially interesting piece of advice/humor/inspiration is that sometimes you just have to bounce with a situation until you land where you’re meant to land. Let someone else do the driving for a change. Direct me, Oh Universe… tell me where the crystal ball leads today!


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.

    Maybe you just need a day off from squeezing that overworked brain of yours.

    Bouncing around is like rollin’ with it – also ball-related terminology. It’s the best way to reduce stress and increase adventure possibilities. ❤️

    I think your brain juice is simply spent on something else that requires equally a large amount of brain power. And even your fountain of idea is drying up😂 You might need a break, dear my friend😁

    You did well for not being energetic! I like the idea of bouncing rather than rolling:)
