Benefits of feeling bored

Today was a wreck.

I did most of the work planned for today in the morning. I was supposed to help my sister after but that help was no longer needed when I got there.

I felt too drained to continue to work.

Boredom set in.

I’ve grown to like the feeling of being bored, as long as it doesn’t turn into restlessness or apathy.

Boredom signifies to me that I still have life in me. It’s a desire to be doing something purposeful, but you’re either unclear on what you want to be doing or you’re prohibited from doing it, like I was today.

Today was a reminder that I have a lot of life left in me, an eagerness to create and add something beautiful to the world.
