Welcome to your life. Welcome to mediocrity. Welcome to what your life could be, if you can divert your thoughts away from boredom, routine and petty frustration for longer than 5 minutes. But you can't. Welcome to you, the center of the universe where your life looks anything like what it could look like, served to you on a silver platter. Welcome to misery, discouragement, frustration ... until.. you decide to choose. Welcome to your reality check into a little humility. Welcome to a new awareness to give yourself a choice to look differently at what your dull life has become.
Reality. You get to consciously decide reality.
