I laid around lazy today thinking really hard of what to do. I had just successfully pulled off the Django Girls Minna #2 workshop and I couldn’t help but wonder what next.
I am the type of person who hates bring bored with nothing to do. So I attempted reading a book, didn’t spend so much time on that. Then I watched a movie. I also spent an enormous amount of time on social media. All this time, I couldn’t shake off the feeling that I needed to do something better with my time.
You see, when you start doing valuable things with your time, you become more aware of how much time you spend doing things of little or no value. Therefore, as I surfed the web and liked pictures on Instagram, I realized that I was made to work. No wonder laziness is so frowned out in the Bible. It’s not my default nature.
My default nature is that of endless creation
I was so excited when I was called to help develop a vacancy ad. I never knew how jobless I was until then and how much more interesting it is to have something to do. And so I put myself into the work and created a wonderful ad. The person asked for a broadcast message and I delivered a poster.
And so, I have decided to ensure I do something really tangible each day. To create something beautiful. This could be words, could be a new mindset, a picture. It could be anything. I just have to keep creating and engaging myself in purposeful work daily.
