Warning: " Protect your toes. This post might step on them. Hopefully it will help instead, so here goes.
Some little kids say it all the time. They want to be entertained. They're bored. (Some little kids never say it though. They seem to find tways to entertain themselves.) But what happens when we're not little kids anymore?...we still say "I'm bored". O_o How impressive is being bored? Do I really need to answer that?
Being bored says "In this world of multiple opportunities, I can't think of a single thing to do". Here is where I could list all the things in the world that there are to do. Do I really need to do that? Anyone with the slightest amount of grey matter in their brain is aware of the possibiliities ranging from art to business to community service to reading good books (like the Bible) to working out or even to zip-lining. An activity for every letter of the alphabet is available - but do I need to list all 26?
Boredom is a choice. (not a very good choice though.) It's a mindset. It's a decision a person makes - a perspective a person takes.
Maybe comisserating with other bored people is an activity in itself. Each person states "I'm bored". The conversation is much like a tennis match. Bouncing the boredom back and forth. But who will win this match?
So who is responsible, who decided to be bored? Hmmm? There is a quote that says "A bored person is a boring person". Being boring is not a way to get ahead in life, much less to get a date. I haven't heard anyone lately say that their dream guy is tall, dark and boring.
The end of boredom starts with you. Visualize some goals. Get inspired to work towards them. Banish "I'm Bored" from your vocabulary. I hope your toes are okay
