During childhood, our boredom would often flood even with the simplest of distractions. There weren't enough animals to draw, not enough new books on the shelves to read, nor enough paper to craft inventive paper airplanes. But, from those moments of weariness and frustration comes creativity. Perhaps some of us fabricated our own ideas that we deemed artwork, wrote our own stories to share with our parents, or began an obsession with origami that proved endless crafting hours. We are forced to explore uncharted territory, and that is where creativity reigns.
Encourage boredom and celebrate the periods of lethargy. Without such an origin, we would not be the creative people we are today.
