A friend of mine is doing something called 100 Days of Happy where everyday she shares a reason to be happy. She is on day two hundred something. I’ve decided to join her in her adventure! I’m going to start with something that blows people’s minds, especially my kids’. I am happy for boredom. I have been very bored lately and just playing games on my computer which is also boring. The reason I’m happy for boredom is because it brings out my creativity. When my brain is bored I try to leave it that way for a while. It never fails to bring an idea for a project to mind, especially when I would rather do anything other than play another computer game. With me it’s usually a sewing or craft project, but it could be repainting a room or rearranging furniture. Once I get started on that project, more and more start popping into my head. I don’t consider boredom a block or a hindrance. I consider it an open door for change and new possibilities. My kids say I’m strange and I probably am, but strange just means different and to me different is good. Have a great day!
