I have decided to take a new spin on some of these Motivational posts because if I am going to be honest (which I always am), I am not always that motivated. I know, I know; hard to believe that this lady right here has off days (HA!), but it’s true. There are some Mondays where I look down only to realize that I have been staring at a blank page for 37 minutes – not one word written. Oh, and do not dare sit me + my laptop in front of a TV when there is a Motivational Monday to be written. It will NEVER happen. All of this to be said so that I can prep you for this week’s topic: boredom.
While I understand that writing a ‘motivational’ post about being bored can be the ultimate cause of boredom, I ask that you just hear me out. In fact, I think we should start by covering the bases of some normal causes of boredom. In my experience watching golf will make you bored. Standing in the toy isle while your grown-up boyfriend looks at action figures will be boring. Listening to Justin Bieber – bored 2 notes in. Oh, and anything that is routine – the ultimate form of boredom.
I have recently caught myself in what I will refer to as a ‘life routine.’ You know, the one where you wake up, get ready, commute to work, work, commute home from work, cram the chores/fun parts of life into a few short hours, and then fall asleep until you are up and doing it again the next day. Seriously, I am bored just writing that out. The thought of falling into this boring rut is terrifying to me and it must be stopped before I turn into the lame chick (never)!
In order to avoid any travesties like the one mentioned above, I have decided to grab a journal and use it to create a little ‘life list’ for myself. What is a life list you ask? Well, I can tell you that my life list is just a collection of the things I want to accomplish for myself. From something as small as upgrading my cooking skills, to something as significant traveling to Bali – this list will motivate me to step out of the normal routine and into some fun!
First thing on my life list? Even more blog posts throughout the week! Let’s see how well I can accomplish this one.Pin It
