The Daily Grind?
December 5, 2018

Here’s an antidote to being bored
with your own life:
get interested in other people.
 
Be helpful.
Give a listening ear, without judgment.
Do someone a favor.
 
Turn off your screen (phone, ipad, TV)
and volunteer somewhere.
Get out in nature. Change the scenery.
 
Seek out situations where you will meet people
who are nothing like the people
you normally hang out with.
 
It’s a big, wide, fascinating world
full of unlimited possibilities,
and you are only here for the blink of an eye.
Seize the day!
