We're always sitting around doing nothing. After getting bored of 'doing nothing', we go tweeting about how bored we are of doing nothing. And after waiting for retweets and mentions that we're not even going to get, we'll go on Facebook and post it up there. A friend recently said to me "If you're bored, it means that you're not doing something that is beneficial,"... it went something along those lines.
And so I gave it a little thought. A list of things came up in my head
- Clean your room
- Make your bed
- Wipe the windows
- Distribute the clothes
- Wash the plates
- Sweep the floor
My reaction to that was
So I realised what my problem was. It wasn't that I had nothing to do. It wasn't that there was nothing for me to do. It's just that I was lazy. And then when people go around calling me lazy, devils around me would put suggestions up in my head of ways to batter those people up. That made me think again. Is it me? Is it really just me? Isn't it the devils... the satans...?
From then on, the answer to overcome boredom became so easy.
Go against the satans. Fight them. Batter them up. Tell them that they are wrong. Get up and start doing good deeds.
And here I am, still sitting...
