Have you ever noticed that children have never ending enthusiasm? They see everything with a sense of wonder like seeing it for the first time. You know your Inner Child has surfaced when your adult self is enthusiastic and excited!
Why do we lose that enthusiasm? Sometimes within our childhood we are told that it's not appropriate to show enthusiasm. That's not how grown-ups behave. Were you ever told that? Maybe that is a belief that you created for yourself. Another reason we lose our child-like enthusiasm is stress. Look at all we as adults have to deal with. Jobs, family, relationships, finances, all the responsibilities! Who has time to be enthusiastic? Most of the activities we engage in all because we HAVE TO. We have to make a living, keep the peace, be an adult.
"None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm."
I don't know about you, but I don't want to feel old! I want to have that child-like enthusiasm.
Let's do this together then. Let's become really mindful of the way we see things. When we do something, anything, let's look at it like we are doing it for the first time. Bringing back the enthusiasm in my life is going to be my intention for the week.
Will you make it your intention too?
Let me know how you're doing!
