As humans, we have all sorts of different types of emotions and reactions to life. Sometimes we cannot help how we react to whatever life throws at us, and life can quickly get us down, however; I’m here to tell you that you can and should practice the routine of being excited for life.
One of the things I love about my boyfriend is that he is an excitable person. He manages to become excited about the smallest things, almost everyday. Where this may seem silly to some, I believe it’s admirable and that we should all strive to be excited for life each and every day.
I’m not saying we should get excited over absolutely everything, (example: my boyfriend has gotten excited over paper plates before) but small things such as beautiful weather, playing with your pet, Dunkin Donuts actually making your coffee right, or waking up at 2AM and seeing you still have many more hours to sleep before work the next day. Be excited for life’s smallest, yet pleasurable gift’s.
Let me tell you why you need to get into this routine.
Life is Meant to be Exciting
Many people who work a 9-5 job seem to get stuck in that routine of waking up, going to work, going home, eating dinner, going to bed, and repeat. Don’t get me wrong, it’s easy to fall into that kind of routine and, we have to do whatever it takes to get by and survive. However, you don’t have to get stuck in that robotic lifestyle by only going through the motions of life. I am a firm believer that life is not meant to be boring or repetitive. If life seems to have gotten dull, *cue Spice Girls reference*, then you need to spice up your life. Set new goals and do things that excite you. Life is meant to be exciting.
Makes Room for Ambition
Being excited for life gives you the opportunity to do more, achieve more, and be more. You will want to get more out of life, and have a hunger for wanting to try new things that you were once not so enthusiastic about. Be excited for life. Have a drive to become more ambitious. By doing so, life may grant you with open doors in the most unexpected places.
Welcomes a Positive Outlook on Life
Life is hard, and because it can get us down at times, it is easy to fall into a negative mindset. The key is to get out of that state of mind and focus on the positive, which in this case is that life is exciting. Yes, even though crappy things happen, today sucked, or you’re in an awful mood today, life is still exciting. Think about this question for a second. Is this crappy mood/day permanent? No! Remind yourself that there is still a whole lot of life to live, and tell yourself to be excited for it. Tomorrow is a new day.
Boosts Your Overall Happiness
This is a pretty obvious point to make, but because it is so crucial, I can not leave it out. The most important thing about life is happiness, and happiness and excitement go hand-in-hand. Being excited for life makes you want to get out of bed in the morning and be curious about what they day ahead is going to bring. We only have one life to live, so we might as well make it a happy one.
My boyfriend is the perfect example of someone who practices this type of routine, and I can only hope that it rubs off on me, because it is such a rewarding and fulfilling way to live life.
Be excited for life, and embrace the challenges it has in store for you, but; do not forget to take pleasure in the small things in life that help you remain excited for what is to come.
