I had a moment today
One of those moments when you are somewhere familiar, a park that I grew up in to be exact. I was lucky growing up with a park at the end of my street that connected me with life long friends and a place I spent alot of time in with my sister.
I was sitting there today with my kids, it had been the first warm day hinting of the season change to come, I could smell the familiar scent of the local trees and grasses, The way the sun sneaks through the trees and the colour it spreads across the green grass, as I look around I see the typical garden in the area which surround me with comfort, memories flood into my tired brain and I’m filled with excitement.
Holy shit I laugh to myself quietly as I realise that the excitement I am feeling is driven by the park and memories. This is the excitement I fealt as a kid and had been feeling quite a lot lately with all my adventures and education into side hustling.
As I was growing up I was filled the energy of life and the endless possibilities and places it could take me. Back then I thought I could be a soldier or a millionaire. I could drive a flash as car and travel all the time. Who was going to stop me?
Society Was Going To Stop Me
I moulded myself away from the outrageous risk taking adventure to the reliable and expected path of career and solid foundation.
I can’t complain too much as it has lead me to my queen and kids as if I had to catch the bus of life to the most generic stops and wait for them to board, now they are on the bus it can go anywhere we want.
This new thinking has reignited something inside of me, the awakening of my mind to the option of following dreams and making them a reality.
If there was a gas leak I would have caused an explosion due to the sparks flying around my soul.
The Excitement Of Life
Is back and the fire is getting brighter and brighter with every action I take towards my goals.
What’s happening is life is starting to look how it did as a kid. I now believe that I can do anything and be anyone again. My goal of being financially free, sharing the wealth with family and travelling the world can and will happen. It is going to happen because I am determined and driven. I am Pumped.
I am just plain F*@k’n excited about it all.
Can this simple switch to reignite life be the answer to so many people’s problems? I’m not sure as I still have my down and angry points but they don’t last as long as they used to.
I can tell you that now I know what the type of excitement is that I am feeling, I will embrace it and allow it to flow through me and my family.
If you think back to when you were a kid what excited you about life? If you had a poor upbringing what kept you going? Maybe you can start your journey of discovery and be reunited with the drive for life.
I am interested to hear your thoughts people.
If you like the idea of being excited about life then please share it with those close to you.
