[1: 1,857 of 10,000] I Killed My Boredom

grit

There’s a fluke hanging around me this past few days, I do have lots of work at the office but I couldn’t find the energy, let me scrap that, I couldn’t find the enthusiasm not just with work but of life too. I don’t feel fulfilled, I find little joy, and I couldn’t see the future. I know the future is not important but it is practical to be ready for it.

My inner soul is screaming for a more challenge, a more meaningful endeavor to use my gifts, and I don’t know exactly how to proceed. To kill the boredom, I listed what skills would I be interested to learn, habit to establish, and what dreams to fulfill:

  1. Keep reading books
  2. Creative at graphic design
  3. Bright at writing copy
  4. Read, write, and speak Arabic
  5. Speak Mandarin
  6. Read and write Chinese
  7. Interpret body language
  8. Eloquent English speaker
  9. Great English writer
  10. Smart programming
  11. Enjoy plant based food
  12. Exercise daily by doing yoga
  13. Memorable annual foreign vacation trip
  14. Write best-selling books
  15. Extremely wealthy to the point of able to help other than myself
  16. Read palms

After writing all those down, my bored self suddenly shut up. My beautiful soul spoked with a bulb all bright and lit up, “So baby steps, get going, do all of them.” The thrill is how many will I cross out before I die and I don’t have room for not wanting to live.

[1: 1,793 of 10,000] The Moment You Get Bored

bored

One of the men that I look up to said it’s impossible to get bored because there are so many things that a man can do that would even contribute for him into becoming ‘great’.

I read from somewhere that it is also good to be bored and enjoy that moment to do nothing or use it to relax.

So what is it then, is it good to be bored or not good to be bored? What is really important is to reflect especially if it’s happening quite a lot and it deters your productivity like being bored at work says a lot.

Boredom is about not liking what you’re supposed to do or you can’t find anything interesting to do.

The best way to break the boredom…

  1. Do something for the first time that you have never tried before.
  2. A change of perspective about the situation like I need to clean the dishes, such a boring task, but what if every time the water runs through your hand you associate it that you are in a beach enjoying a vacation swim or whatever you fancy that the sensation of water triggers excitement (naughty thoughts included, well what the heck so long as it gets the job done and you’re elated).
  3. Define a reason with a compelling stake like I work for a healthcare company and I could imagine that every work that I do saves life or get someone to spend precious moments with their loved ones, and that makes it selfless and even borderline heroic.
  4. Learn new skills that will allow you to not be in where you currently are. If you don’t change anything and do nothing, then your circumstance will remain the same.
  5. If it happens once then chill, be bored, sleep, and get rest.

 

 

[1: 1,720 of 10,000] I’m Not Bored, I Was Lazy

It clicked on me that I am not actually bored with my life, it isn’t possible considering there are so many ideas that I can realise some may not be easily even by myself but by working as a team, in short I was lazy. I was lazy to put my heart into action, to be dedicated, to move my ass, to believe that I am capable of greatness in my own right, but I was very committed to making excuses, to being scared, and to be stagnant.

OK maybe not super lazy but I was focusing and accomplishing all the wrong things that will not advance me to what will make me satisfied and be happily present. I was quite happy delaying what needs to be done, I am up for eating too much, or finding another things to keep me BUSY but not for the essential matters.

I do have the syndrome of freezing whenever there is something important to be done so I’ve promised myself beginning theis weekend that no more excuses, no more fooling around, no more procrastination, no more being confused, no more running away, no more lurking in social media just to fill the void I’ve assumed, instead HELLO incredible and fabulous life!
