Technology keeps us constantly stimulated. What do we lose when we no longer have nothing to do?
BY MARK KINGWELL
BOREDOM IS ONE of the most common human experiences, yet it seems continually to defy complete understanding.
We all know what it is to feel bored, but what exactly prompts, constitutes, or follows from the condition of boredom is far less obvious.
Is boredom a function of leisure?
Does boredom tangle desire or personal conditions, or both?
That is, when I stare at the full refrigerator and complain that there is nothing to eat, or when I scan 100 cable channels and find nothing to watch, who or what, exactly, is to blame?
Never Lose Hope. You never know what tomorrow might bring.
None of us are immune from falling into difficult times. That plight is something we all have in common. Another thing we all have in common is the ability to choose how we are going to react to the difficult times when they come. Will we allow them to destroy our hope for the future or will we decide to view them as a learning experience meant to help us as we continue to move forward with hope that the best is yet to come.
Amy Rees Anderson, Forbes
“No Matter How Far You have Traveled in the Wrong Direction, You Can ALWAYS Turn Around.” ~ TobyMac
Being lost is just a nuisance. There is no discovery unless we release the potential, because the potential is what reveals our values, our purpose, and it is part of the journey. So put on the backpack, grab the walking stick, partner with a trustworthy friend and get going.
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. – Eleanor Roosevelt
