The Borings

I’m not so good at this blogging thing.

I too often let the borings of life get in the way of the interesting, the fun, the creative.

Right now, the borings pay the bills; writing a blog post does not.

As I drove home from one certain boring, I thought to myself, “if I were to die tonight, would I have accomplished anything? Did my life make any difference? Did I reach my highest goals?” I know life is not without hope, but I still want to leave this world with a small trace of who I was for those I leave behind.

I want to live so loudly that people notice. Of course I want to love and to serve and to make others’ lives better; but I also want to experience life, to live creatively and purposefully.

I just feel so robotic.

Here’s to hoping I can live a teensy-bit longer… long enough to not be ruled by the borings, and long enough to experience and drink deep of the joy in life.

  1. I ask myself those questions very often too. đŸ™‚ Very much like a self-audit.

    I am reading a book right now about research people have done on happiness and the happiest places on the Earth. It is making me re-think priorities and all the “borings”. It is called “The Geography of Bliss” by Eric Weiner. I mention it because it is answering some of my questions about day to day life.
    ALSO! (Don’t tell my friends I mentioned it second) but I know some folks that just published a book called “This Ordinary Adventure” http://www.facebook.com/ThisOrdinaryAdventure I think it could be amazing!
