Cartoonist Leigh Rubin conveys a humorous look at boredom in his comic drawing of a goldfish in a bowl, entitled “Diary of a Fish.” The diary runs from Sunday through Saturday and conveys the same entries about how the fish spent its day: It swam. It ate. It slept.
Now, you may view your existence as one of dull routines, causing you to feel bored and disinterested in life. When someone asks, “So, what’s new with you?” you may let out a sigh and mumble, “Same old, same old.” But, your days can be transformed and refashioned to add freshness and richness to your life. Being spontaneous can open you up to new experiences. Taking a risk can offer learning and challenge. Doing something out of the ordinary can provide an opportunity to grow. Embracing unpredictability can strengthen your ability to flow with life’s challenges.
If you feel there is nothing special going on in your life, do something different from what you did yesterday. Even simple changes can provide enough stimulation to make life more interesting and enjoyable.
