Another Reason that Boring is Good

I was having a conversation today with a friend and made a joke at myself about how tremendously boring my life is...  without the running entertainment somedays the most amusing or exciting thing I would be able to claim is a trip to Costco or an online discussion board about system organizations, unsaturated lipids, unicellular organisms or ethical relativism.

This friend, whether they meant to or not, reminded me that we're all in this together.  We all lead boring lives, we all are stuck in the mundane.  Some people do a better job making boring look good, but truly, for the most part, we're all the same.

It occurred to me during this conversation that... maybe boring is a good place to be.  Anything too exciting flirts with the idea of tragedy, and frankly, I could go without that kind of drama in my life.  So let's take a moment and be thankful for boring.

May tomorrow be just as uneventful.

I love my boring, routine life! ;) I would take boring over endless drama any day!

I agree...boring is better than drama! Those who are in endless drama crave boring! Look closer though...your "boring" life may be more exciting than you think! How boring can it be with 3 little ones around?

Boring = WONDERFUL. I'll take it over the crazy any day...

Good point. I'll take boring over tragedy any day.

But I still can't shake the feeling sometimes of, "Is this it?"

You're boring...well then I am right there with you. I go to bed so early and love being at home watching tv and just chilling out. Don't get me wrong a night out with the girls is great, but I like my alone time a lot too. When I was away this weekend at this "night club" that had Bentley's and Lamborghini's parked outside I actually found myself laughing...at the situation, at how happy I am NOT to be in this "cool" scene, and out of being a tad bit uncomfortable. I am so happy to lead this boring life...It must to be exhausting NOT being boring!

Boring and routine are where it is at! Exciting doesn't always mean "in a good way." My life is exciting right now...but not in a good way. Here's praying for a little mundane-ness!
