What is enthusiasm? Great or intense feeling for a subject or cause. Ardent eagerness. Zeal.
Did you know that the word enthusiasm comes from another word meaning “full of Spirit” or “full of God?” Chew on that thought for awhile.
There are moments when I’m on fire. Energy and excitement burst from every pore and I have to restrain myself (at least until I’m behind closed doors).
Then, there are the times when life is a grind. I’m bored or tired. Days when I struggle to find something to get excited about, searching for that extra spark to make it through until bedtime.
Why can I get excited about some things and not others? Is my level of enthusiasm an indication of how important something is to me? Or it merely an indication of sleep deprivation?
What about you? What are you enthusiastic about? Do you feel a lack of enthusiasm for some other part of your life? Why? How can you fix that attitude?
