The term “acting brand new” is normally used in a disparaging tone and for equally disparaging purposes.
When someone is said to be acting brand new, it can mean they are acting like they were born yesterday, or like they have no clue concerning things that are going on.
Acting brand new can also refer to a person’s behavior. Someone who acts as though they don’t know how to conduct themselves in certain situations – when in reality the situations are common or normal for them – is acting brand new.
Despite the normally negative connotations, we can place a positive spin on acting brand new.
You see, today’s inspirational quote from Marie Lu reminds us that each day is brand new.
Each day is a new start; an opportunity to rewrite whatever script life is currently tossing our way.
Remain mindful of the fact that “Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”
Take the 24 hours you’ve been given, and go ahead and act brand new!
