My Energizers

In all of my searching for what I'm "passionate" about or want to do or should do, I have never heard this piece of advice which put it so plainly. What things in your life give you energy? The things you can't wait to do. Things that excite you. It sounds straight up obvious but when put so plainly I actually got it.

(From this blog post).

I'm going to have to start paying more attention to the things that I get excited about. One moment sticks out in particular. Almost five years ago (maybe four, I can't remember exactly), my husband and I were jogging on a spring morning and when we got back home I started looking at a Martha Stewart magazine. Easter edition to be exact. I was pumped. Maybe it was a mixture of the positive endorphins from exercising but all the thoughts and emotions that filled me when I thought about having a home, an Easter egg hunt and lovely decorations and spread of food made me excited.

So, I guess I need to exercise more and see if anything else excites me. AND I need to read more Martha Stewart. Lastly, I should think of how to not put roadblocks to the things that make me happy and how to realize those excited thoughts into actual action.

I get excited about other things too but that will have to be another post.
