Today, I am sharing a post that I wrote last November, when I first started blogging. Hope you enjoy!
1. not sharp; blunt.
2. causing boredom; tedious; uninteresting.
3. not lively or spirited; listless.
4.not bright, intense, or clear.
When I get to the end of my life, which I will assume will be 40 or more years away (Lord willing), I hope I can look back and say, “Well, Jer, our life sure wasn’t dull. And you sure are hot for a 70 year old man. Now pass the mini-aspirin and my walker, would ya?”
Of all the things I could choose to be in this life, why not be anti-dull?
I could always be anti-bullying, anti-cruelty, anti-virus, anti-terror, anti-piracy, anti-smoking, or anti-Beiber. For sure I am anti-wrinkles, anti-running, anti-Taco Bell and anti-soggy bread. But anti-dullness is guaranteed to make my life more enjoyable and interesting.
I am thinking of anti-dull things like applying a truth from the Bible to my life, playing the drums in the church praise band, going away and doing something fun with Jer, doing quality things with the kids, taking time to go out with friends, or daring to try something new.
Being anti-dull takes a willingness to put the things that fill up my life in the right perspective and priority. Sometimes it requires me to stretch myself, and step out of my comfort zone. I have to be willing to take risks and also be willing to fail. It calls for imagination and perseverance, and occasionally sacrifice.
But it holds the promise of blessing, victory, and fun.
What could you do today to make your life anti-dull?
