Some days I’m bored.
There, I said it!
Bored with the routine, with work, the same conversations, whatever! When this hits, I *try* to catch myself. In fact, nothing in life is boring. It can’t be, because nothing in our life is insignificant.
Not the traffic, or the colleague standing mournfully by the water cooler. So treating it like the mundane is the biggest insult to God’s design, and capturing your role within the moment is the way back out.
You see, on this particular day, I caught the emotion by it’s heels and dumped it out the window. I then began with tapping into the spirit. We all do this differently. With me, I try and focus intently on what and who is in front of me, but I also look for hints or nudges from within. On this particular day, a certain person kept popping into my mind.
So I picked up the phone and called her. Sure enough, she had been going through something and needed a pick me up–something I’m quite good at. In fact, one might call it a spiritual gift. I get sucked into the way of the world like we all do. The challenge is to keep yourself tapped into the vine. Emotions like despair, boredom, etc. are clear indicators you’ve lost touch. The good news? You get right back on the bike and make something out of nothing. Lemonade out of lemons. At the end of the day, you’ll be in awe of all the work, the real work, you’ve accomplished. Everything else is mere window dressing.
