Life is an adventure

This weekend I talked with my sweet gal pal. She told me how her man always encourages her to do all things with as much enthusiasm as she can muster. For example, she was packing for college so he told her to be the most enthusiastic packer in the world.

This is brilliant.

I am sitting at a coffee shop today with a pile of job applications to fill out and I dread each one. Honestly, I’m just sick and tired these days. Sick of being out of work. Sick of being single. And really sick of being crabby. The last thing I want to do is write a cover letter, who wants to hire a grump anyway?

But my friend has a point, if I become the most enthusiastic cover-letter-writer around, maybe the HR person will catch that enthusiasm and hire me. Who knows, maybe I’ll start to believe my own enthusiasm and actually find a way to enjoy the process.

Isn’t this precisely the type of brain shift we can all make? Let’s become enthusiasts at our tasks. Taking one project at a time and fully diving into it. And maybe, if we do it with all our muster and moxy, we’ll start to enjoy the things we used to dread.

We might even feel like these ‘lil characters who are determined to enjoy, dive in, and take the ride.

I’m determined to take the ride, dive in, enjoy!

Are you determined?
