Recapturing the Excitement of Life

Do you remember the excitement of jumping out of bed, ready to charge forward and live your life to the fullest? Or maybe on Christmas morning right after Santa Claus had delivered the presents and your parents allowed you to get out of bed? I am looking for that excitement to come back in my life.

Typically, I take a mini vacation after April 15th to get my energy back, but this year it took more than that. It took me 45 days but I finally feel recharged after giving my all during the last 3 years. My mind is active and creative again. My life is some-what in order.

I have some wonderful things happening. The perennial flower garden is blooming with beautiful colors. The birds are back, I have seen hummingbirds, cardinals and woodpeckers. The squirrels are having one heck of time chasing each other. I got my fence back up and my secret garden is now a secret again. I spent a week just holding my new grandson and spent some time with my boys in Arizona. Steve and I just celebrated 25 years of marriage with a long weekend in Door County.

Last but not least Jodi and I celebrated 10 years in business as FOCUS CPA. I am now working on a design for the next 10, 20, 30 years of my life. Only one way to live – with excitement.

How do you recapture that feeling?
