There’s a word that’s been on my mind a lot today – bored. It tends to be seen as a negative feeling but is it? Does it have to be seen like this?

Why can’t it be seen like this?

Isn’t that better?

My opinion is that bored should be redefined. It can be positive, perhaps even exciting, as contradictory as that sounds. Bored is an opportunity, it’s a challenge. It’s the interval between one memorable moment in life and the start of the next. It’s a hunt for something interesting. The recognition that your current activities or lifestyle are not stimulating enough to warrant your full attention and effort. It is the availability of time, coupled with the desire to use it more productively. The motivation to change our lives for the better.

When you think about it, wouldn’t the world be a better place if more people were bored?
