Boring life??

I have so many friends whose favourite one liner in life is "I am Bored!". Now, how do we really determine if we are leading an exciting or boring life?? there is a way!

Ask yourself this one question:


Yeah! it stumps you sometimes, doesn't it?? Think hard!

If you can list 2 or 3 things that you have done for the first time in the last 1 month - then you are having fun! Otherwise you are leading a boring life.

Its all in your hands! Take charge!! Enroll for those music or art classes that you have been planning for years now. Re-look at your New Year resolutions, I am sure you discarded most of them, dust those & see if you can keep up with those resolutions, pursue the hobby that you always wanted to, go on that postponed holiday now... Its all in your hands!! There's more to life than sleeping, eating & going to work!! Have a blast!! Live like there's no tomorrow!!

Keep asking yourself this question frequently & ensure that you are doing new things all the time.

(Yeah, yeah, even I go thru philosophical phases sometimes!)

Hello! Thats a good post.. "I am so bored", "Life is so boring", etc is what I say to myself sometimes.
Hmm.. I watch movies, listen to music, go on a long drive or cook something new to make my life lil interesting!
I don't recall doing anything for the first time in a long long time! Doing something for the first time ? umm..Like what ?

Hey Shillu, This is a great post. I keep telling my husband about picking up a hobby. His life as you mentioned is sleeping, eating and working. For me I have kept wednesday evenings as my personal time, where I usually enroll myself for learning a new craft or visiting new stores opened in my area or sitting at Barnes and Nobles browsing at some magazines. This way I am out of my daily routine atleast for a few hours a week.
