You know, that "I don't know what to do right now" feeling?
I was just browsing an antique store to pass the time. I'm not usually into that kind of a thing. But right now I'm in the middle of decorating our new back deck and just thought I'd pop in to get a few ideas.
I fell in love with that place! Ideas just started to flow and I got all excited and giddy inside.
I thought, "I could stay here forever." Sadly, I was only able to stay a few brief minutes.
I didn't make any purchases, I just allowed myself to dream and then planned for the next time I could go...maybe dragging my husband along with me!
On the way home I pondered on how it would be nice to be bored sometime. What would I do if I were bored? What ideas would flourish if I weren't rushing from one place to the next or planning the next thing ahead? What inspiration would I receive...and then be able to follow? What dreams would come to fruition?
When I walked into the house after my little escapade, I was surprised when my daughter welcomed me with, "Mom! I was bored, so I made this!" She revealed a piece of beautiful artwork she'd produced while I was gone.
|A's Boredom Creation|
You can't see but she has crumpled garbage glued in spots and a broken up peppermint candy as well.
If only I could be bored....
