Remember when you were a kid and you finally got a new toy? How exciting was it? Everything about that toy was new, interesting and entertaining. Fast forward to when you got a new car or new cell phone. If you were anything like us, you were spending most of your time that day downloading the newest apps or riding around. It’s like you just couldn’t get enough of it. There was so much to learn…so much to do! Well, we are having a very similar feeling today. The only difference is the magnitude of that emotion. We now get to experience a new city. New apartment, new restaurants, new coffee spots, new parks, new running routes, new stores, new faces and the list of “news” go on and on.
It’s like the honeymoon stage of any relationship. Blissful. So we decided to challenge ourselves to maintain this feeling of excitement. Obviously it is inevitable that these feelings of thrill will fade, but we want to strive to keep finding our next “new” to excite us. That is what we are asking of you. What is it that you once received or experienced in your life that gave you that awesome feeling? Remember why you felt that way and do your part to relight the spark that initiated the excitement. We get made fun of all the time for our redundant comment of “It was the BEST…(fill in the blank).” Seriously. ALL. THE. TIME. In our case, it works out just fine. If everything continues to be the best then we never lose that wonderful feeling that we all hold on so tightly to. Find it. Remember it. And please, bring back the excitement.
