What makes you excited?

When I was a child many things made my heart start to race. Seeing the big rides of the fair from a distance as you drove into town. An upcoming school dance. The sound of the door bell knowing it was your date. But as an adult fewer things in life give me that same feeling. So, I really started to think about fun. What do I really get excited about now that I am a wife and a mother? Have responsibilities shaded the excitement in my life? I tried thinking back to if I could pin-point the last time I had that racing heart excited feeling. A few thoughts came to mind but these things could be confused with a sense of pride for my children's accomplishments or the jitters from my public speaking's, and sometimes it could be fear over doing something a bit more adventurous than I am use to. Can we somehow regain that true hearted excitement we felt as children or is it lost forever to our youth?

It might seem like a joke but it is actually not. I always excited when it is related with the moneymaking. Since I know that I can make money from internet 2 months ago, I became so much addicted and excited and I didn't really care about any other real world activities LOL. The excitement is exactly like the first day on school.. want to know more, want to get more, and full of hope to get the best from it.

hi! many things make me excited. and just like you one of them is seeing big rides of a fair. but today what really makes me excited is seeing my friends again. since our semestral break i havent seen them...and i am really excited to see them again. cant wait to chat and catch things up with them. another thing that makes me excited is when i go to our province in Ifugao. it really give me butterflies in my stomach when i reach this point where i can now see the whole province. i am sooo excited that i always wish that i could just stay their forever. because although our place is a typical province, it still showcase many things that God has bestowed to our place. There are still lots of things that i ould like to share but i think this would be enough for now...to allow others to share their own opinion..so happy mylotting my friend.
