Think of this: ExcitementPosted: November 26, 2009
From among the thoughts I have read which made me either sad, enlightened, challenged, or encouraged; I am sharing this one to you.
Do something every day that tickles your whiskers.
Tired of doing the same old things called routine? I do—sometimes. That was why I searched for the possible cure to couteract my “boredom”. The answer is obvious— to grasp exciting things every now and then.
The excitement or spices I looked for aren’t the expensive or new ones. Instead, I tried to remember those within my reach but hardly found time (by discretion) to do. I also thought of the things that are simple yet, I am unfamiliar with and I certainly would love to learn. I came up with this bottom line, or should I say common denominator: the “thing” becomes exciting if it is in line with my interest.
Sensible, right? What else can break the ice better than the things I want to do.
Last week, while I was buried in the middle of I-want-to-get-rid-of-paper works came the sudden attack of backache. Stressed, I was. (Who isn’t?) To my luck, my officemates’ children came and ask me for something to do (FYI, the boss was not around then, hehehe). A break, finally. I grabbed a couple of scratch papers which I asked them to crumple. To come up with trumphet-like tube, I cut the end of a bathroom tissues’ tube. Then, I made two connected wings out of an old folder. I sticked the crumpled paper on the wings which make the wings look soft. The remaining crumpled paper was made into a head. Then, the body parts were put together. Presto! an angel. The project was simple, not very impressive, green, and definitely stimulating. But mind you, after a few more minutes, I was back to work refreshed and more eager to finish ASAP.
Hmm… Now its your turn to share. What excites you, especially during crunch time?
