Enthusiasm = absorbing or controlling possession of the mind by any interestor pursuit; lively interest.
Part of my reason for wanting to become a better person, one who is learning, reading, writing, eating healthy, exercising, listening more and talking less is that I am truly enthusiastic.
A better connection with myself that now allows for a deeper appreciation of all that has been made available to me. Typically for the asking or in many cases, I’ve never really had to ask, it was simply handed over, openly, freely as a result of my uncomplicated inquiry to know more.
“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” ~ Winston Churchill
Recent trends and progressions have been filled with what I like to call “simple truths” and the information, guidance, recommendation, and endorsement to access the very best ideas available is quite strong in the blogging community. Though the shear mass of information can be overwhelming, yet the pros are seemingly open and willing to assit us Green Peas with great ideas and advice.
“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful; we take for granted what God has done for us. We let what once was a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to goodness, it becomes routine; it doesn’t really excite us anymore.” ~ Joel Osteen
As I have written about and continue to read and study, I am a huge fan of giving thanks and the power of gratitude. In my search for a more meaningful life, I am today constantly reminded about why I am indeed so very inspired to not only learn and grow, but share of my discoveries. It is this desire for a more spiritual connection that I am energized and enthused with life, the possibilities are endless it seems from this vantage point and I am relishing in an existence of good tidings.
“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration,motivation, and a pinch of creativity” ~ Bo Bennett
The trials and tribulations abound for any and all who have experienced a daunting challenge that pulls at our ability to stay enthused about or goals and our dreams. When we can step back for a moment and appreciate that we are indeed blessed in so many ways, this moment of gratitude can indeed recharge our senses and bring new fire into our lives.
Take a moment this holiday season and gives thanks, it will not only inspire, it will influence and even encourage us to respect and delight in the fact that we have yet again reached the end of another year.
With all new resolutions that briefly empower us to do more, eat less, laugh often and appreciate our gifts, remember to add that it is our enthusiasm to grow, prosper and to give back to mankind that we find the most joy and contentment.
Ho, Ho, Ho…
