Why are we bored?

When all we feel like doing is sleep cos we feel some kind of fatigue most of the time that’s when boredom has totally kicked in. Are we feeling sick and tired about some thing(s)? Are we very used to getting/doing anything we want the moment we feel like having/doing it at the soonest – instant gratification? Have we become all too serious that we are unable to laugh at our past for the precious life lessons learned the hard way? What if everything that has happened has happened for good regardless of how bad it may have been perceived? What if there’s a field beyond rightdoing and wrongdoing?

We all have freewill choices. We can dread in silence and complain within or out aloud about how we just feel so bored of living and wish for this boredom to end at the soonest or we can choose to simply breathe and be aware of each time we breathe in and each time we breathe out making patience the biggest strength that we will ever need knowing even a second ago was the past and it’s over in the present moment. We can choose to anchor patience as our biggest strength. Then, when boredom kicks in, the anchor keeps us between feeling nothing and everything. 

If life is like a game of snakes and ladders where every player plays till the top winner box is reached even if there is only one person left playing then it can get quite intense sometimes as we may tend to find it pointless to continue playing alone. But we do have a choice to become playful with patience as the biggest strength and play the game well till we reach the winner box even if we are all alone.

How playful can we be in all areas of life?
