Boredom Stagnates The Soul

Life is never boring but some people choose to be bored. The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way. Boredom is a choice; something you visit upon yourself, and it is another of those self-defeating items that you can eliminate from your life. WAYNE W. DYER

If anyone does a certain thing for five years, in my case blogging, ennui is bound to set in at some point. It’s part of the bad side of human nature and I happen to agree with the quote above: Boredom is something that we choose.  But we can unchoose it!

We choose what we feel and how we look at situations–for the most part. I choose to go to work and not be a slacker—to be a responsible (mostly) person. I choose to remain at home and do my socializing on line. I guess I’ve elected to remain in my rut, chosen not to ‘evolve’ myself. Ouch! That simple truth hurt. Sometimes, self-realizations can be painful—but worth the pain in the end.

I choose to not be bored with life. Or blogging. But it’s time for me to grow into something else, to try new and different things.
