When Your Life Just Feels Blah, and You Are So Ready For Excitement


Ever wake up and feel “blah?” Just another workday, or just another day of doing absolutely nothing. I wonder, when you are not filling your life full of friends, work, significant others, where ARE you exactly? They say the key to happiness is living in the moment, but what if that moment just feels flat and dull, like the bad hair day that never ends?

I know there are tons of people with great advice out there. Get a hobby, go out to bookshops, meet new people, go to a park, paint something, watch something, play something, or write something. Which brings me to this post. Have you ever felt like you were on the edge of something, but you couldn’t put your finger on it? I have felt lost for a long time, and I thought that the way to fill my life with joy was to bring a man into it. Wrong. So wrong. No one can give to you what you can give to yourself. I mean we all want companionship right? But what if you finding yourself searching for something more than what you have?

That’s the problem with the human species. More. Always more. Acquiring, achieving, filling up, more, more and more. What will satisfy us? I will admit, life seems blah at the moment. I am so ready for some excitement in my life. Something new, something challenging. I often thought to myself that getting trapped in my own mind would be my downfall. How do people find joy In their lives? What makes them happy?

I see, all around me, a sea of people buried in their phones. Are they happy? A group of friends all sitting at a table, not talking, just clicking away on their phones. Are they happy?  Our dependence on technology is daunting and a little bit scary. Do we really need all this constant communication? Is it so hard to just sit with ourselves and turn the damn phone off. Eh, I don’t know it just leads back to the same question:

What brings you excitement when your whole world feels blah?

When I get the answer to that, I will surely let you know.

Stay tuned.

I am in my late-thirties just trying to figure out life in a big city. "When in life you are handed lemons, make a vodka martini." "When I am happy I enjoy the music, but when I am sad I understand the lyrics."

    • Dancing in the Dark is a great song! I loved listening to that growing up. Did you know Courtney Cox from Friends, got her first big break by starring in that music video? You tube it, Bruce actually brings her up on stage! I think it’s so cool! But I think the way to make your life exciting is doing something you love. For me, it’s going to be writing. I think I am going to get more immersed in it. Hopefully your music and reading helps you along!
