B = boredom…

Have you ever thought about
B16oredom?

I have.
When I was a little girl I wasn’t B16ored often
but there were times that time just dragged on with nothing to do.
Of course, there was a lot to do…it was routine stuff and B16oring.
Then when I was a teen it seemed all of life was a  bigB16ore
because what I wanted to do was not allowed…and rightfully so.
Still it seemed so unfair to have to live a  life of B16oredom.
As a young woman, I felt B16ored because I wanted excitement and adventure.
I did have some adventures that led to excitement
however, it would have been wiser to be a bit B16ored!

Nowadays I don’t look for excitement.
I like my life of quiet days
that many probably think of as B16oring
It doesn’t bother me a bit what other people think.
It makes me happy to stop and smell the flowers,
to simply be who I am…a woman who knows she is blessed.

B16oredom
is not part of my life anymore.

That’s my post for the letter
B16

  1. I’ve always thought that something must be wrong with me, because, I’ve never felt bored. Not as a child nor as an adult. I can always entertain myself. Weird huh?

  2. I haven’t been bored since high school sitting in boring classes. Once I could study what I wanted to, I haven’t been bored since.

  3. Lol when I was a kid we didn’t dare to say the word “bored” out loud because we would be given a chore to do! As an adult, I can’t remember the last time that I was bored; I do a lot of quiet thinking, jot down notes for stories, or watch people and animals going about their lives. Cats and children are my favorite creatures to observe!

  4. Perfect B post! I so agree with you. I often felt “bored” when I was young too, but looking back now I just think that my mind and spirit were restless. Just like you, I am never bored anymore, I love my very simple quiet life with Papa Bear and the furkids, and my Internet friends. I will be happy if someday I can forgo the hectic office environment altogether. 🙂

    1. I am happy that I work part-time now. I enjoy my time at work more now than ever before. Your day will come. I had to work 50 years to get to where I am.

      1. We are hoping we can manage that financially within another 3-5 years, Patricia, and I agree, working part-time is fine. It’s good to get out among people because I tend to become a hermit very easily.

  5. Ever since I started doing my 366-day photography project in August 2015, I’ve discovered that I’m not bored. I have to take a picture of something every day. I’m so busy looking around for something or someone to photograph that I forget to be bored!!!

    1. When we have a mission we are not bored. Doesn’t matter what the mission is just that we are involved in something outside ourselves.

  6. I like the quieter life that I get to lead these days, too. I’m not necessarily bored. There’s too much on my mind to be bored.

    I absolutely love to stop and smell the flowers, quite literally. I think that Heavenly Father is a wonderful gardener and artist. 🙂

    Have a blessed weekend!

  7. I embrace my boring, little life because I could have the opposite – a complicated, drama filled, stressful life – and that is something that I do not want. There’s much to be said about just “being,” don’t you think? Enjoy the still and quiet! Have a good one!
