Share Your Enthusiasm
A Strategy for Joy Video! Hurrah!
I’m celebrating my darling friend Michelle’s book* launch by giving you on the skinny on Enthusiasm. Dig in and take on the challenge in the comments below!
As adults, we tend to shy on the side of underwhelm. It’s not cool to be excited about the Steve Martin concert or new neighbors or the fact that your grocery store is finally carrying sesame butter. It’s not hip to dance around in celebration of your new client.
We bottle our emotions or only share complaints because it’s so much more acceptable to be critical or sarcastic or blasé.
But who wants to be merely acceptable? Allowing yourself to go gaga for a new recipe, an amazing line in your novel, a new crush, or your brand new website feeds your childlike soul. Allowing yourself to get excited, to express hope, to be thrilled a tiny exchange is how us “happy people” enjoy the journey.
Showing enthusiasm towards anything is a gift to yourself.
It’s a way to guarantee that you won’t fall into a too-cool-for-school slump of apathy.
In this video, I’m challenging you to let things light you up! Share your passion! When you get excited about the little or big things in life, you’re reminding yourself that your delight is important.
And any reminder that YOU are important fuels your inner confidence and self-love.
*The Declaration of You will be published by North Light Craft Books this summer, with readers getting all the permission they’ve craved to step passionately into their lives, discover how they and their gifts are unique and uncover what they are meant to do!
