“How Are You Never Bored?”

My youngest asks me why I’m never bored. I tell her it’s because I love working, and things are just too interesting.

There’s always something to do, and there’s always something to learn. 
When I was little, nobody entertained me. People my age entertained themselves back then. Our childhoods weren’t orchestrated by external things like computers or even cable television. 
We learned to make our own fun. 
This is a great life skill. 
Again, I remember the wise man’s words that one of the greatest gifts you can give a child is the gift of boredom. 
Wait and see the creativity that blooms.
