“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about” – Charles Kingsley

What excites you? What stirs your imagination and makes you smile from the inside out? For me, it’s words and music. Both of these things inspire me, so I couldn’t imagine a life without them. Luckily, I’ve designed my goals around what brings me joy. Instead of still being a public school teacher, I made the leap to full-time writer. Sure I gave up cushy things like free health care, a steady paycheck, and steady retirement savings, but I was slowly slipping into depression. Now, I may not have all the perks (or rather, I have to pay for them), but I’m waaaaaay happier.

What are you enthusiastic about? Have you incorporated those things into your daily life?
