I am bored, THANK GOD
After a master’s degree, 3 years of non-stop teaching, 20,00 views a month to my writing online, a marriage, loss of a mother, picking up and moving to Vegas, and getting promoted I am HAPPY to say that I…am…bored!!! Mwa ha ha ha ha… finally.
YES, as an online writer I am supposed to write about you and how fantastic you are to get more views. TOO BAD, punks. Today is my day to selfishly celebrate the fact that I am feeling bored. OH SWEET BOREDOM, how I have missed you.
One of the major problems that comes along with wanting to me successful is the constant hum of having to be better at everything all of the time. It took the passing of my mom in February for it to dawn on me that I would much rather underachieve and be happy than overachieve and be miserable.
Did you know that most overachievers have low self esteem and most underachievers have high self esteem? It is called the Dunning Kruger effect. So, as a perpetual overachiever, I hereby announce that I am bored…and completely OK with it.
