I believe there are those who think life is mundane.  By definition they might say their life is lacking interest or excitement; that it is simply boring.  I was never a fan of the “boring” word; in fact I figure if you have to use the word boring you probably are just plain boring yourself!  As for mundane sure there are times when life does seem to lack the excitement we might be looking for.  But when life seems lacking I look to these words:

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”

--Gordon B. Hinckley
