The Gift of Boredom

Instant Gratification is just a switch, click and scroll away.

The Gift of Boredom is something easily dismissed; because there are plenty of options that desperately want to fill these spaces for you.

And it is conveniently easy.

Searching for photos, watching youtube videos, or binge watching Netflix can be done before you recognize how you got there.

And just like that your boredom is gone.

But imagine how excruciating boredom must have been before the instant gratification age...

No internet, nothing on TV, and all your friends are busy. What to do?

Boredom can be your insight to do something in that moment of nothing.

Now, does boredom really exist?

Boredom has become an itch to scratch rather than a moment to make an important decision.

What is it that has been on your mind? What had to be done months ago? What burden can you alleviate?

These are questions that can be answered with conscious living. A life where the decision you make is crucial to reach the achievements that you know you deserve.

But the time to make these decisions are becoming easier and easier to be taken from us.

Many artists of yesteryear, before the instant gratification age, picked up a brush, a guitar a typewriter and made history.

Whatever you choose, if you can notice boredom, congratulations! this is your time.

Nothing is consuming you, and your free to create just about anything.

And now, that creation can be done online to share with the world.

Make the right decisions and fate might be on your side in creating something spectacular, or you can watch something spectacular created by someone else.

Whenever you feel bored, notice that the choice is on the table.
