Calm isn’t boring

On the surface, a calm person appears boring. However, calmness allows us to explore experiences that excitement does not.

Western Europe is straddled by two coastlines – the turbulent Atlantic and the clam Mediterranean. One way to explore these waters is to get on a surfboard and ride the waves on the Atlantic coast. Another option is to hire a kayak and paddle away on the calm waters of the Mediterranean. Both surfing and kayaking are interesting experiences. While excited waters are a prerequisite for surfing, serene waters make for a meaningful paddling experience.

The reason we perceive calmness to be boring is because we turn up on the Mediterranean coast with surfboards.
