We all have things in our lives that excite us. 

For me, gardening as often as possible in the yard excites me. 

When I stick my hands in the dirt, and close my eyes as I sift it through my fingers, I feel a deep connection with the Earth and with the soil and the insects. 

I find myself apologizing to any bugs that I’ve upended as I sift.  Every worm I find gets a new home and a brief pep talk about how I’ve found them this new home and I hope that they will like it. 

When I am done gardening for the day, I go back inside the house, feeling refreshed and eager to enjoy that experience yet again.  🙂

Do What Excites You


We can all fall into the motions of life, trying something exciting can be just the spice you need.

Each human life has the potential to be dramatic, thrilling, and awe-inspiring. Our lives are, in truth, ours to design. Each day, we make choices that influence the character of our experiences, and our decisions determine whether our paths are rousing or tedious, breathtaking or tiresome. We can create an exciting life by simply doing what excites us whenever the opportunity presents itself. Your passions may ebb and flow, and what excites you one year may not excite you the next, but when you make excitement a regular part of your existence, life becomes more fun and more fulfilling.

If you are somebody that tends to live practically, excitement may overwhelm you at first. To ease the anxiety that prevents you from incorporating all that you find exciting into your life, acknowledge that you are alive right now in this time and every moment matters. When you choose to do more of what excites you, even if your choices requires you to make certain sacrifices, your daily life will soon be imbued with exhilaration, pleasure, and optimistic anticipation.

To understand what excites you, you may need to observe and ponder your reaction to the activities, events, circumstances, and concepts that make up your life. What makes your pulse race, what makes you want to get out of your chair and take action? Try to avoid getting too wrapped up in life’s details; their tedium may cause you to plod through your existence unaware of prospective excitement. Once you have created a substantial list of what excites you, find ways to integrate each item into your routine. You will soon find yourself riding a wave of excitement that lifts you up and makes life truly worth living. What excites you in your life?
