1, 2, 3… Boom. Welcome to adulting. You now have responsibilities, commitments, deadlines and way too much other crap going on. No wonder you’re such a bore! STOOOP! Pump the breaks. Rewind. You, love, are anything but a bore. But maybe, just maybe, you are acting a touch boring… Don’t shoot the messenger.
Look, it happens to the best of us. As we get older more and more crap piles on top of our plates and we keep thinking, If I can just keep my head down a bit longer I can make it out. Only problem is that the light at the end never gets any closer. It keeps getting farther and farther away. WTF!
But guess what, you have the power to make that light shine it’s light on your beautiful face. Beam me up, Scotty, I want a taste of that! That’s what you’re thinking, right? You can admit it. We feel ya.
The secret you ask for is within you and it is super easy to find. All you have to do is STOP. Each day find a moment or several moments to stop and do something unexpected. If your creative juices are clogged by dull adulthood, stop and dance. Break out your most titillating music and bust a move. Have a solo dance party or to really stop the boring you, drag a few friends onto your impromptu dance floor. Not only will you be the life of the dance party, the physical movement will send your juice flowing right.
Perhaps you’re in a poopoo adult funk and seem to be sucking the life out of everything. But wait; is that a sweet child selling cookies? Sure, you could be a bore and say you can’t buy any because it’s swimsuit season and Lord knows you don’t need another calorie… OR you could buy some delicious sweets and chat with the gang of cookie monsters Find out why they’re selling cookies. Kids are always full of hilarious honesty and cheerful giggles. It is hard to be an uptight bore when they are telling you about the adventures their gang encounters. Let the conversation inspire you to enjoy the rest of your day with a smile. Maybe you will allow yourself to find your own little adventure.
Whatever you do to lift the boring fog, the number one way to live a life that is chalk full of fun vibes is to start living! Stop saying you can’t go to the next Harry Styles concert because you’re too old to have a mad crush on the ex-1D stud… Start opening your iPhone to Ticket Master and hit the buy button. Why miss out on something that could be spectacular because you’re too “adult”? A major adulting sinkhole is this idea that growing up means that you now have to conform to social rules. Be funky. Be wacky. Be YOU. No one is going to look back on your life and say how wonderful you were at doing your laundry or marvel about how punctual you were to work. Now, don’t go skipping out on work, you totally need that job to support your new love of adventure. Work to live; don’t live to work. The point is that you only have one shot at this life so do what brings you joy, and when you do that you will no longer be a bore you will be the coolest adult in town.
Whatever your funk may be, it is up to you to get out of it. Sure, you could be the ol’ stick in the mud or you could be the YOLO hustler. It’s up to you. How do you want to live your life?
