Something more terrible than a hell where one suffers may be imagined, and that is a hell where one is bored-
I’m tired, weary and bored. The quintessential trifecta of re-injuring oneself, or others.
Boredom typically arises from one’s own lack of motivation, conviction and creativity. Each one of us gets bored now and then, for all I know you are already bored with this tedious post? However, the difference between being perpetually bored and seeking “healthy” alternatives is vast. You can become bored with running, cycling and yoga. Showing up and going through the motions, ignoring your body and true spirit. This is the kind of boredom that takes us down a destructive path …
How can anyone be bored in today’s world? Computer do-dad’s, IThingy’s, you name it! There’s even an app for being bored! It seems that one has to look rather hard, actually seek boredom to become bored. Once we are bored, it takes some perseverance to shake off. We can form a habit out of being bored because it presents a degree of comfort and safety. This is the point in the post where I tell you that you can become bored while running or doing yoga in the morning: Comfort and Safety.

Today is a brilliant day to get creative, who knows what might happen, especially if we keep an open mind?!?
