Slowing Down And Doing What Excites You

What excites you?

This might be the question that needs answering the most, for many of us. This question has been posed by Tim Ferris, in his book, The Four Hour Workweek. In it he asks the question, “What is the opposite of Happiness?” The answer, he gives is boredom. This insight has helped me to search out the things that make me excited, which Tim stated was a more appropriate synonym for happiness.

Brilliance, light shining in the darkness, illuminating the passage back to a path once forgotten. I don’t use the word bored to describe how I feel, rather feeling, not saying, I have felt apathetic, like it wasn’t important, whatever it might be, that truly creates joy for me. I can’t say I am happy all of the time, but I am excited more often, and that is something like living, being alive, doing what excites me.

This would mean nothing, if it were not for you. Go out and live again if your not, dream a little, and who knows? Maybe life can be beautiful; and maybe you’ll find that joy you once lost, always hoped for or thought was only a fairytale.
