Enthusiasm Makes Life Worth Living!

"We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about."
-- Charles Kingsley


This is so true! People sometimes laugh at (not with) me, because I'm enthusiastic about one thing or another. Goodness, if I waited until something monumental happened, I'd have to wait until: a) my next child was born, or b) I hit the lottery. And since: a) I'm approaching menopause (who knows how many, if any, childbearing years I have left) and b) I don't *play* the lottery, I'd probably be waiting a loooooonng time to be enthusiastic. I'll just have to take my happiness, joy, and enthusiasm where I can get them :-).

So, I leave you with a quote (yes, another one) from my favorite philosopher, Dr. Seuss:

Say it with me, now:

"Come on! Open your mouth and sound off at the sky!
Shout loud at the top of your voice, "I AM I!
ME!
I am I!
And I may not know why
But I know that I like it.
Three cheers! I AM I!"

And that, gentle reader, is the last post of November for this blog ["Peanuts" theme music playing here], hereby marking my completion of the 2007 NaBloPoMo, and the NaNoWriMo, ... A giant 'Thank You' to my friends who have dealt with me being unavailable and distracted this month ... it's over with, at least until next year [grin]! Happy, happy, joy, joy!! Have a great weekend!!
