“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chiff requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.” – Charles Kingsley
There is great truth in this statement. When I think about why I get up every day, it’s because I have a job that I’m generally enthusiastic about. In fact, there are several things in my life that make me look forward to a new day. It would be simple to give into depression and anxiety, but when I focus on the things that are good in my life, the things that I enjoy, it’s possible to keep on. Things like my work, knitting, family, friends, photography, dogs, etc. give me purpose and bring meaning to life. They’re aren’t very complex or worldly things. Simple pleasures suit me best. What makes you enthusiastic?
