A to Z Challenge: Excitement

Luckily, although it is not the easiest way to live, taking charge of one's life does have its perks.

See, when you are following your goals and dreams, the things you do to achieve you bring joy and excitement. Because you know that you're heading somewhere with them. Those things mean something to you.

Cling to that excitement and passion. Try to remind yourself of it as often as possible. Because when things get hard, the knowledge and memory that you're doing something really good will pull you through until things start looking up.

Remember: You are literally on the ride of your life.

Do the things you do bring you excitement and joy?

Loved the post and the word excitement.

It's a pity people don't realise that life is a journey and must try and maintain all the exceltement along the way.

The nightmare is drawing your last breath and thinking 'was that it?'

Hey there, just popping in courtesy of the A to Z challenge!

It sounds like you've been through a lot. I know all too well how hard it can be to follow your dreams and make it all come true. I'm on a similar journey to yours-- I'm formerly a teacher, currently an artist, and trying to make it all work out in the end despite living with chronic pain.

Your posts are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your part of the journey. If you check out my blog, I hope it helps you as much as your posts have helped me <3

I'm looking forward to seeing you around as things go on. Best of wishes and good luck-- and just keep on writing and dreaming and doing! :)

it's always good to stretch, explore excitement, get used to it then pause a while before the next stretch.
Lovely thoughtful post. I'm at the stretching stage..

Yeah it's such a huge pity that people only realize the truth of it when it's almost too late.

Misha Gericke said...

I'm glad you liked it. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Hehehe yeah I don't make as big a thing about this one as the other. Welcome to TCoML, though. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Definitely. My greatest wish is to come to the end of my life and know that I truly lived.

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Glad you think so. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Good on you for going after your dreams. May God be with you on your journey. :-)

I agree with you, stretching your comfort zones etc is the best way to live, because you'll find the perfect opportunities because they are hidden in the new things you do. :-)
