Being bored is a good thing.
It's funny how creativity is such an elusive thing. I started this morning being very energetic and worked steadily but come midday - crash. I didn't feel very inspired at all. One could even go so far as to say that I was bored.
I do have brief periods when I'm very creative. I get loads done, but then to be able to deal with all the creative ideas that keep flying through my mind my brain says:
- No mate. You're bored.
Wham! There goes my whole afternoon. It's quite clear: just like a battery, my brain needs to recharge and I do so by lying on my bed eating popcorn, listening to a brilliant audio book, and surfing the intra web.
Cool new things that I have learnt this afternoon:
Brazil's national cocktail is the Caipirinha. I did not know that.
Quite clearly Australians have the best thrift stores. If you need proof, just jump over to Bungalow Bliss.
There are too many things on Convoy that I want but my brain keeps telling me that I need.
The afternoon is gone, but the best thing is that when I go back to working I can look at things with fresh eyes. See - there is nothing wrong with being bored.
