Boredom is a BEAST!

I struggle to remain consistent in my writing sometimes because I do not exercise patience. I get bored with “trying” and “my efforts.” Eventually, someone gives me a kick about my blog and I am slapped back into the reality that this is not about me. Huh…if it’s not about me, I get bored. Ain’t that the truth for all of us?

Boredom can really cause discouragement and derail you from pursuing the good things in life. Where there is no interest, there is no return. Boredom occupies spaces in life that lack consistency, patience, and discipline. I believe this is why we are challenged with keeping our commitments. I am learning to push myself and demand discipline instead of living by feelings. Writing when I feel it does not exemplify discipline. Get up and get movin’ out of this state! #BreakBoredom

Taste of TRUTH

I love fresh vegetable (veggie) salads. I used to add lots of Italian or Greek dressing to my salads and veggies because I love the flavor. Over a period of time, I started using less and less dressing and tasted more of the veggies. I wanted the natural goodness of the vegetables. It took some time for my taste buds to adapt and adjust to the loss of the blended taste of dressing. I took more care and concern of my health and mental awareness and there was less need for supplemental flavors to my food.

I think our lives in general work that way…we add pleasurable taste to the truth in efforts of making it more palatable. The process of mature taste for the truth in life will emerge as the appreciation and value of life changes. At some point, adding “stuff” to cope with the cover up becomes dissatisfying. Chewing and digesting the truth is an acquired taste. #TasteTruth
