A couple of weeks ago, 2 of my very good girl friends and I couldn't stop discussing the perennial and continuous banality of our lives. We couldn't explain how exhausted we were of doing the same things over and over, like clockwork.
After tireless conversations regarding this topic, we concluded that we were far from being ungrateful, as it may seem that way to some, because we've led, and are still leading, very charmed lives. We just became wary of being cheered by the same things, as well as getting sad over the same ones.
When familiarity starts to breed contempt, you can't just rest on your laurels and continue talking about how ennui has taken over.
You need to do something interesting.
You need to become a better person.
You need to pay it forward.
