Bonjour, mon ami!
Love your mundane life. I really mean that. We grow up so fast and we are blitzed with loads of information since the dawn of computers (#Millennial, #PluggedIn). We overcomplicate our lives with other people's stories and trauma (#RealityTV, #MurderMysteries). We feel other people's pain so deeply because we're all connected. But why do we run towards the pain so often?
We want to help because we are human and empathic, but then we become desensitized. The pain becomes too much to endure every day. You might find yourself gravitating more to quiet corners, binge-watching TV, or enjoying the same meal you've always enjoyed, the exact way you've always made it (#MaySeemBoring). It's your little mundane life's ritual to tell your inner core that life will be okay if you keep your head down. But we can't always keep our heads down because we must look up for answers. We must look up to pay attention. We must look up to see the truth that is out there. We cannot shelter ourselves from fear and we cannot rely on others to tell us God's honest truth (#FindYourOwnTruth, #LifeLongLearner).
I suggest to you, my little joy sprite, take everything in small doses. Small doses are more manageable. You can mend small doses of pain. We all need to rest. We all need to heal. Kind of like walking on pavement barefoot. You can walk on uncomfortable terrain, but if you walk for too long, your feet begin to wear, tear, and bleed (#TrueEmpath).
We need both excitement and boredom. We need excitement to grow and learn new things. We need boredom to regroup, analyze our experiences, and self-investigate. Creativity is born from boredom. Conformity often confronts creativity because it challenges the status quo (#FuckConformity, #ShakeShitUp).
Love your mundane life to learn who you are as a person on the inside. Stay true to yourself (#CoreSelf).
