Monday Mantra: I Am Enthusiasm

Is there anything more exhilarating than wild, naked, unfettered enthusiasm?

Children are naturally enthusiastic. At some point in adolescence, enthusiasm becomes too vulnerable, too raw, too embarrassingly uncool. It does not go unpunished, particularly when it is for things or people outside the narrow realm of what is deemed acceptable.

Close your eyes for a second and call forth something for which you feel total enthusiasm and passion. Let yourself have the full experience of the thrill and joy that this thing engenders.

Where are you tamping down your natural enthusiasm and exuberance? Can you take the lid off today and really let it flow and blossom?
