What are you excited about? Or excitedly looking forward to in your life right now?

I'm looking forward to the new job that may now only be a few weeks away. I'll be much more excited when I finally get the call telling me I have a start date. After 9 months of waiting since I got my offer, the initial excitement has faded, but I think it'll come back when it's time to start the job.

At this very moment, I am VERY excited about my vacation to Punta Cana. I leave a week from tomorrow. YAY!

Other than that, I guess looking into going for my Master's degree is exciting. However, it is frustrating at the same time because I cannot decide on what I want to go for.

Nothing, really, and feeling this way is driving me up a wall!

I have come to believe that depression or just plain feeling down is OK for that is part of life. To accept that as part of who I am helps me "snap out of it" better. When I fight it or judge that I should be happy then it seems to prolong the funk. I believe this is part of "shadow" stuff that is part of me and the more readily I accept it as part of me then the better I will feel about ALL of me. This is a continual challenge for me.

I sometimes "fight it" with focusing on gratitude but realize I need to just accept it first.

Thanks, Mark, that's consistent with what my counselor said this morning, and I'm going to try to just live with how I'm feeling for the moment rather than trying to jolly myself out of it and/or criticize myself for feeling this way.

i'm excited about growing up and finally becoming a man. i know i know... sounds kinda silly coming from a 31 year old. but, uh... you guys know me well enough to know that i've got room for additional maturity. ;-)

...the school year starting and seeing familiar faces after the summer hiatus. I like the energy and enthusiasm that students bring to campus, and the activities that flourish year-round (summer too, but less so).

I'm excited about the fact that I'm paying off my debt, going to Ireland next year, studying for my CMP. I'm excited that I ran a 5K and did a 130 mile bike race in two days.

All of this because a year ago, I was in a relationship that I allowed to stifle who I am and what my goals are without giving ME a thought in the whole thing--I thought the relationship was the whole thing. In a year's time, I've made some seriously vast changes in my life and I'm a better person all the way around for it!
