Finding entertainment and healthy distractions can be a daily undertaking. Living with boredom is really an unnecessary state of being. Looking past the boredom to some special ways to uncover enjoyment and satisfaction and fun is an assignment for all seniors. Blaming others for your state of mind, means that your state of mind has no imagination.
In an effort to find fun, I/we are blessed with the presence in our families, immediate and extended, persons and pets who help stimulate such fun. In our 35 years of marriage we have enjoyed pets throughout that time. In turn we have been rewarded with their flights of enjoyment and play. Forgetting how to play is one of the plagues which can rapidly descend on and ruin the golden years. Keeping a sense of humor, finding joy in unexpected places, creating laughter or frivolity in the moment are all ways for us to pump energy and pleasure into our lives.
