“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
And it's true Charlie. I've known a lot of happy people and a lot of depressed people, and the one thing all the happy people seem to have in common is that they have something in their lives that they are really enthusiastic about. I'm talking about more than just something they enjoy or a hobby they find pleasing, they have something that they really put their lives into. Some people make sports cars their lives. Some people devote most of their free time to (insert sport here.) Some people make their careers their main interest in life (and some people get so depressed when they retire.) Some people make their children their main focus in life. Whatever they settle on, these people pour their whole lives into it. If it is not their reason for living, it at least is of major importance to them.
What do you get enthusiastic about? Why do you get enthusiastic about it? How could you lose it, and what would you do if you lost it?
And above all, BE DETAILED. Don't just say "I like football because it's fun." This is an introspective thread, or at least I hope it will be.
