Life Is Good But Where's the Party?
I was raised during the sixties when you entire life was suppose to turn out like Father Knows Best and Donna Reed. But the reality of life is that no one prepares you for real life.
We are not taught in school or even from our parents what life - living day to day is actually like. We go to school and prepare for our career, watch commercials that make us think everyone is beautiful, skinny and wealthy - but that is so far from the truth. And even working hard your entire life, even with an education might not make you wealthy.
Marriage and family - well of course - isn't everyone doing that? No, they aren't because once again no one has taught us how to do that in a successful way. Sure there might be people that you would like to assimilate like your parents or someone in the public eye - but who actually teaches it to you?The methods in real practice?
I thought live was always suppose to be happy, adventureous and full of people and places to meet and see...SO WRONG! As it turns out, I did get the degree, marry and buy my own house, set up my own self-employment biz in later years...BUT no one taught me what life was really like. The every day, SO BORING part of life.
I can honestly say that 95% of my life has been boring! That doesn't mean that I haven't been doing something, work or hobbie - it's just the routine is so boring! Everyday cannot be exciting! And that's the bummer because all my pre-adult life I was gearing up for it! And I thought it was all my fault that I wasn't living a life full of exciting things everyday. But it is not my fault or anyone else's...it just is.
Life is boring - you have to realize that of the days/times that you find it exciting, enjoy it to the max because it is shortlived. And if anyone tells you that everyday is exciting don't believe them. Everyday can be challenging but not exciting...
And for those life myself who are bored to death at times...just realize that you are not crazy or weird or less-than and certainly not alone!
