When was the last time you were bored? I feel like I was regularly bored as a teen. Now? Being bored sounds like a treat! As the days fly by they’re filled with busyness from the moment we wake to when we finally dose off to Netflix.
This January my little family and I snuck away to drink up the sun of Mexico. It was hot, rejuvenating, and totally awesome! After reading all my fluffy books, drawing, and long days at the beach I actually felt bored. It was a strange limbo, away from work and home so there really wasn’t anything I needed to do. We laughed, slept in, played Sudoku and talked about life. Time felt slower, the days longer and I enjoyed mundane jobs like taking out the trash or getting groceries. Is boredom the secret to slowing down time?
By the end of the trip my man (also self employed) and I guiltily admitted to each other we were done with the holiday and couldn’t wait to get home and work. What a strange feeling.
Being bored was glorious but also made me realize that I secretly love being busy, our days are full and taking slow holidays I appreciate that even more.
