Nobody is bored when he is trying to make something that is beautiful or to discover something that is true.William Ralp Inge
Are you feeling bored?
You want to have some fun time and spend time for yourself instead of cracking your brain and trying to be more and more productive. I truly believe spending time with yourself is essential for everyone. Self-love is not selfish. So keep aside all your fears, take a break from your grid. Clear your mind, and enjoy some me-time.
