#15 Terry Hershey: The Noble Pursuit of Boredom

December 5, 2016 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Our odd topic today is titled, “The Noble Pursuit of Boredom.” This show will offer unique ideas on boredom.

This might seem a bit peculiar to most people. It sure is for me, because, honestly, I am scared to death of boredom. I’ve got to be doing something somewhere in order to feel valued or needed or happy even.

When the real question is, “Why do I need to be seeking busyness to make my life feel worthy or happy?” One of my greatest fears with quitting doing a job for a living was to feel bored or useless. Further revelation has caused me to reconsider the need for either one of those things.

This was a huge hole in my soul and many others that needs to be rectified by something other than busyness.

One of my all-time favorite quotes is by Susan Ertz who writes:

Millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”

Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
