The most exciting thing about boredom

Being bored is a gift; it’s an opportunity. 

Boredom is space, freedom, capacity. It’s the ability to move around, try new things, learn, and, best of all, create. 

When you’re busy, you are trapped. You have obligations, responsibilities. You have to do such and such for so and so. 

When you’re bored, your time is open. 

The key is to fill it wisely, purposely. 

You can paint a painting, write a book, make new friends, deepen existing ones, meander through a museum, lie in the grass daydreaming, read a novel, learn something new. 

Boredom means possibilities. You get to create your adventure. 

Don’t be afraid of boredom. Find it. Embrace it. Use it. 

It means you’re free.
