Post image for Boredom: A Blessing In Disguise

It’s like a stagnant hum that lingers in the mind. It comes about, somewhat unannounced, and shoos any form of entertainment out the door: Boredom. Read more »

When you are bored, do not complain!! Realize that boredom = free time = a time to get to know oneself better. Grab a brush, a camera, a book--try to stay away from the tv--go out into nature and become nature. Our lives are so guided to distance ourselves from our true selves, our nature, our spirit and bodies--mother earth within us. Go find what makes your heart move.

South bay (socal's south bay) born and raised! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to grow up. Although I love traveling, every time I fly over downtown, see dodger stadium from the air in front of mountains and the ocean in the distance, I get chills. It always feels so good to come home no matter where I've been.
