The topic for Writer’s Quotes Wednesday’s Writer’s Challenge this week is ; Exciting
Excitement can be a momentary thrill, a favorite memory, or an obsession. You might be a very calm person and people who don’t know you well don’t think you get excited, but you know inside of yourself what does it. Most likely it is a combination of events that excite you and give you the excitement of living.
Maybe it is seeing your children succeed at their most recent endeavor – smiling, walking, first word, riding their bike, first day at school, first date, first day of work, marriage, first grandchild. Couple those things with what’s happening with yourself – an ongoing project – building something or helping someone, a new relationship, your work, a future trip, learning a new skill, a move large or small,
It could be that every little thing excites you.
- having friends over,
- cooking breakfast,
- going for a walk,
- reading a book,
- seeing the growth of your garden,
- meeting people at the store,
- finding a new accessory for your living room,
- discovering a bunny in your yard,
- sharing cookies with your neighbor,
- playing with your pets,
- learning a new word,
- video recording your life and sharing it on Facebook.
Life without excitement becomes a boring, drudgery. we do need to keep the excitement alive to enjoy our life.
If we live our lives looking for the excitement and exhilaration that change can bring, we will be much happier than when we are eventually forced to accept it anyways.
As many people have often told us that life is all about perspective. If we seek new things to brighten our lives and get excited about them, believe me, you will enjoy them way more than if we had to reluctantly embrace them.
I had a distant relative who was quite old. She once told her daughter that though she had lived a long happy life, but she wasn’t ready to die just yet. Her daughter asked her in jest, what exactly was it that she was waiting for. She said that world had changed in so many way in her life and she wants to see what new inventions mankind would be making in coming years. This is the attitude that keeps us excited at every age.
The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning you’re not old.
Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
We don’t need to go looking for the fountain of youth. It’s right here in our mind and heart. Just keep the desire to learn and the spirit to get excited about each new discovery, and you’ll be forever young.
No one know what tomorrow will bring. We can either be fearful of it or excited about it. Every morning, I get up with this excitement that something new, something good will happen today. This makes me start my day with a smile and a lift in my heart.
I count my numerous blessings
Family, children, grandchildren all
These are flowers in the garden of my life
Their sweet perfume making my existence fragrant
Wondrous bounties that adorn my grateful heart
I rejoice in this exciting state of being
