Enthusiasm for life

"Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity"~Bo Bennet

Life can get boring; sometimes it seems like we are just waiting for things to happen instead of making things happen. Slumps and ruts in life suck, and it takes a lot of effort to even find the drive to get out of them. Every day, we should try to find little things that inspire us and motivate us. It can be a person, a song, an event, or just something that you saw or heard somewhere. Be creative and make your life fun; try something new and mix it up a bit. Make some plans and have a great night out with your friends. Spend a great night alone, pampering yourself. All of these things can really help us get the spice out of life that we look for. It can lead to self discovery, happiness, and a more fulfilling sense of self overall. All we can do is try; trying is how we find what works and what does, what we like and what we don't, and how we grow. Finding happiness in life is truly what will help us get to where we want to be. It's not easy, but putting forth the effort can really begin to make a difference in the way we feel about every aspect of our lives.
