I just came to the realisation that my life is hella boring. Yes JUST! This isn’t a choice I made or did I? Maybe I subconsciously made this decision when I signed that contract lol! I say this because I have a very taxing work schedule which is maddeningly inconsistent. The only thing that keeps me sane is exercise and music.
I work 10-12 hours in a very busy restaurant. As much I love it because I love being around food and preparing it, I also need to have time to have a social life. I’m always exhausted and the only social aspect in my life right now is texting, calling and skyping. How sad is that?! Look if i had a consistent work schedule I’d be able to fit in a helluva lot of activities cos Lord knows how many things I want to do!
The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom. Look lazy days are necessary. I’m all for that one lazy day but damn some days I’m just like what the hell is going on. This is me trying to get back to blogging because I really miss it and I’ve made a promise to myself that I will try make time for a lot more things and make tiredness a state of mind, as hard as that will be hehe. Oh don’t get me wrong I love my job because it’s making me realise that you reap the rewards if you work hard and also making me save more money but sometimes I want to go out there and see the world and it’s beauty.
I’m not a clubbing type of person but I do it once in a while. Things I wanna do mostly is spend time with people because this texting thing always doesn’t really go down well with me. I prefer face to face interactions because you get to know the person more intimately.
Anyway the solution to this ‘dilemma’ is pause, refresh and restart planning and executing these plans in a disciplined manner. I even take up photography as a hobby. A new day is dawning and things will change. When you realise that you just have problems it’s time for you to come up with solutions and make things happen. It’s very easy to slip into a state of just complaining and it leads to you being a miserable person. I don’t want to be a miserable human lol nope, no thank you!
To anyone going through the same I suggest you pause and reset and write things down and be in control. It’s scary but it’s also exciting. Don’t be a miserable person but choose happiness. Yo if you also have suggestions please do share how you deal with your boredom.
