I normally don’t respond to the daily prompt on WordPress very often, but gave it a shot today. I previewed my list of word prompts and found one that seemed really appropriate: Static.
The formal definition of static according to the Oxford Dictionary is:
Lacking in movement, action, or change, especially in an undesirable or uninteresting way.
I have a static life at the moment. Some people find comfort in routine. That is fine. The routine I am stuck in at the moment was only supposed to be temporary, but it has lasted a lot longer than expected. You could also argue that it is not good for me.
People tell me that I need to do new things. I have a hard time doing this. I feel exhausted after work, and my anti-epileptic medicine may be a factor. I end up cancelling plans to go to events in the evening because I am too exhausted.
People also tell me that I will feel better if I go out and meet new people. I frequently find myself exhausted (previous paragraph) or catching up on work in my days off. How am I supposed to meet new people?
I need to shake up my static lifestyle. Any advice is appreciated.
