Have you ever had those days and weeks when life seems completely boring and meaningless? Those months when everything is just same old same old? In those times we crave action! We want adventure. We feel like we have what it takes to change the world, but nothing seems to happen at all. Same day at school. Same day at the office. And the same dull home we come back to.
Here’s a little secret: It is completely fine to feel that way. In fact, we I realised how much we need those moments of rest to prepare for the times when high energy is required. Everything in life should be working in harmony, and putting the brakes on ever once in a while our hectic schedules is good for our mental health and wellbeing. There is a time for everything, so enjoy the times of rest.
I know you may not want to hear this – but I’m sure you would agree with me, too. Being on Social Media and wasting away your life watching someone else’s life certainly won’t help you feel better. Instead, why don’t you rather read that book you’ve been looking at for so long, or go for a walk around your neighbourhood to have a chai at the corner, or call over a friend and simply listen to them talk. The best life advice a friend once gave me was: Your purpose is not found in yourself, but in the people around you. Make it your habit to show a little love to others every day and you will see how your life will gloom with meaning and purpose. Maybe send flowers to your grandma? Or tell your mom about a great memory you have with her? Or maybe just tell someone you like the way they dress today?
