Do something meaningful
Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, or just surfing the web. These are all things that we do to pass the time. But why? When you are sitting there and doing nothing, you are simply just wasting your life away. The truth; if you are bored, you need to do something meaningful. Not what others think is meaningful, but what you think is meaningful. Try chasing your dreams for starters.
The eight hour work days seemed to drag on forever. But oddly enough, that wasn’t the slowest part of my day. I would come home from work, do nothing but play video games for five hours, go to bed, and repeat the process all over again. No variety, no exploring, no adventures. Finally, I just got bored. I got bored of doing nothing, and going nowhere with my life.
This past weekend, my parents and I took a trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin. Luckily for me, they ended up driving the entire way. Me, well I just sat in the back the entire time and worked on my computer. At first I was getting a little overwhelmed at the amount of things that I wanted to accomplish. Then it hit me. I realized that I would much rather spend any spare time doing something meaningful, as opposed to just sitting there, staring out the window, and waiting for the time to pass.
Think about all of the times that you binge watched The Bachelor, or the hours you spend on a daily basis surfing the web, or the amount of times that you have swiped right on Tinder. Yep, there goes hours of your life that you are never going to get back.
There are so many meaningful things that you could be doing with your time. If you are bored, you just simply are not doing enough. It’s that simple. And yet, some still wonder why they are not achieving their dreams. It is because they are wasting time on things that are irrelevant to what it is that they want to accomplish in life.
Time is precious, and time is valuable. I know that the days might seem to drag on, but let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger. Life itself is actually a lot shorter than any of us realize or think. We live on an average of 80 years, and then that’s it. Then we are gone, gone forever. No more dreams to be chased, and no more creating a legacy for ourselves.
So why not do more with your life? If you want to achieve anything, simply do more. Work more towards your dreams, help others achieve their dreams, or just simply improve on being the best that you can be. Create the life for yourself that you have always dreamed of. Start your own business, be your own boss, be a doctor, be a lawyer. Whatever it is that you want to do, do it. The opportunities in life are only limited to how hard you are willing to work.
Sometimes the truth hurts. If you are bored, well then you are just being lazy. Do something meaningful in your life. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it interests you, then do it. Life is too short to waste any amount of time. Work towards what you want, and achieve the life that you have always wanted to live.
You can accomplish anything that you desire in life. If you believe in your dreams, then you can achieve your dreams. All you need to do is believe. Never forget that, and always follow your dreams.
