The Secret Addiction is not just a book about marijuana addiction.
The underlying theme of the book is really about the reader achieving more
success in their life whether it is with family, career, etc. It is about
growing as a person by removing “interferences” in your life that may
be holding you back. In this case, the interference being cannabis or marijuana.
In this blog, I want to focus on an area that not only
affects millions of people every day, but also is a major player in the many
reasons why people relapse or fail t abstain from smoking marijuana; BOREDOM!! The
feeling of boredom is often misunderstood and can actually mean we need to look
under the layers for change.
Sometimes we feel that things aren’t moving along fast
enough for us and that the world is passing us by. It may be that time seems to
stand still and that we are simply bystanders in our own lives. Other times it
might appear that there is nothing new left for us to experience and that we
are locked into a never-ending cycle of stasis.
If we take the time to listen to these feelings we will
notice that there is probably more going on beneath the surface, like our
apprehension to venture out into the unknown. By taking a new look at how we
live our lives, however, it will be easier to break through our sense of
boredom and enter into a more positive state of being.
Then life seems monotonous, it is usually an indication that
there is something we need to change. Boredom can easily lead us down the path
to despondency. Acknowledging our feelings and then setting the intention to
alter just one small thing in our life can give us a much more affirmative
This act of change allows us to step outside of ourselves
and discover new and exciting things that are often already present in our
everyday lives. Simple things such as eating a healthier diet, taking a new
class, or joining a club are all ways in which we can go beyond our comfort
zone and explore the wonders that exist all around us.
Keep in mind that the moment we do something different from
our usual routine, the more fresh energy, hope, and blessings we will manifest
in our life. What this means is that we’ll no longer see things as being
tedious but will instead realize the preciousness of everything.
Being able to integrate these subtle changes on a daily
basis allows us to recognize the miracles that are our lives. Even though we
may think of change as doing something life-altering or drastic, gentle
transitions from our habitual ways of doing things, and an appreciation of all
life offers us, will truly bring about positive and lasting transformation.
