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

Thursday, thanks…

Looking for that squirrel...

Today is Thursday December 2, 2010

I am rarely, very rarely, bored. I am not talking about the occasional  bout of the  “I have done the same thing for hours and I have had enough” doldrums. I am talking about being bored because your friends can’t come out and play so “I am stuck with myself” boredom. I don’t understand people who are often bored because they don’t have someone to entertain them. Either they are as dumb as a bag of grits or they don’t like  themselves much.  I mean really, how do  people get bored?   I think they must be boring people–they aren’t even interesting to themselves– how could they possibly be interesting to someone else?

Maybe I have an unusually developed imagination or a disorder of some sort.  I can sit and think and wonder and dream for hours.  If it wasn’t for daily stuff that needs  done I think I could daydream endlessly and quite happily.  Some, if not most, of my best decisions have come out of time spent talking to myself.  I am most creative after extended periods of daydreaming, I think this is true of most  people.

I guess those who are often bored are dull and uninteresting and not creative or entertaining and they don’t like themselves.  How sad.

I am so thankful that I was given a healthy dose of imagination.
