I think when you do not have a lot of ups and downs in your life, things are going well. When your updates in life are not dramatic and rather uneventful, it is a sign that things are going well.

Boring is not bad; boring is contentment and a positive place to be.

I would rather be bored than stressed or jumping from one thing to the next. I find I use the word content more than bored, but boredom is not a bad word in my books.

Boredom is something to be embraced and everyone should challenge themselves to be ‘bored’ everyday. Put away the phone and the technology and just reflect. It can be scary to be alone with your thoughts, but it can be a great challenge.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
