Boring, mundane days are a necessary part of life… for if we were never bored, excitement would never thrill the heart.
I have to admit that I have let boredom creep in and stay for far too long, becoming to me an unwelcome companion. Days have melted together and accumulated as some distant vague memory. So today I am taking my jaded life by the horns. It’s is time to begin something anew… some journey of the mind, heart, and soul!
I miss baking… really… I do!
I miss learning… complex mathematical arguments… I really do! My dulled mind aches for exercise.
I miss making friends and being a friend. Writing notes, bearing burdens. I miss them. All of them.
I miss traveling, reading, learning a foreign language, playing my cello.
I miss pushing my body to its limits. Sweat, blood, tears. I miss it all, all of it. For these things that once defined me have been lost.
Time to reclaim the years that the locusts have eaten, and get “unbored,.”
