Random quote – source unknown

I found this quote posted on Facebook, and I think it is very true.

How dare we say “I’m bored”?!

We’re all guilty of saying it at some point. But we have to remember these wise words.

How can we prevent boredom?

  • There is a whole world outside the front door – go outside. Walk around.
  • There are many whole worlds inside a book – just pick one up and read.
  • Flick through a dictionary, pick a random word and Google it to see what you can find.
  • Visit a new place.
  • Visit a familiar place and go down a different street.
  • Hop on a train/bus and get off at a different stop.
  • Go for a drive and get lost.
  • Visit someone you know.
  • Go to a museum or art gallery.
  • Sit in a café and people-watch.
  • Start a new hobby: learn a language, learn to knit/sew/cook etc.
  • Read blogs.
  • Watch random videos on Youtube.
  • Go for a run.

The list goes on!

I have had days where I’ve uttered the words “I’m bored” but I intend to make those days few and far between now: life is too short and too precious to sit around doing nothing!

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
“What is honor compared to a woman’s love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother’s smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
