    What gets you excited about life?

    I almost put "What is something that gets you excited about life?" but that seemed too leading. It shouldn't have to be a thing.

    I get excited about life because I know that it will not last forever. All the pain, worries, and stress that is endured daily is only temporary and will end when this life is over.

      That's a positive look on the end of life.

    Hopefully, this doesn't sound cliché or simplistic but what really gets me excited about life are those seemingly insignificant moments when we feel connected to the universe.  You hear an unexpected beautiful melody, the sensual smell of cinnamon coffee, brilliant orange pumpkins floating atop a pile of dried autumn leaves, kisses, hugs.,,,,,

      The unexpected beautiful melody is a great one.  Those always give me chills up my spine.

    The fact that life can change in 24 hours.  Sure it can be a bad change but it is wonderful when you are down in the dumps and a day later something magical happens.

    Whenever I am stuck at a job I hate, I just think back to other jobs, places, people who bugged me and think "I don't even remember them anymore".  This too shall change.

      That is an amazing tip.  I am going to start thinking about how I can't even picture the people that irritated me at my former jobs in my head. Should ease the stress of the daily grind quite well.

      I don't know who that cutie is with the blue, blue eyes you've got posted above, but WOW.  Her excited face would be enough to excite me!

    Knowing that humans will never be able to destroy life. Even though humans are the vanguard species on the planet we are just a tool in Life's prerogative to learn, grow, and expand beyond the confines of this planet. By giving us consciousness Life is only giving us a chance to be a part of the process. If we destroy ourselves in ignorance of the environment or by war, in another million years Life will rise up again in a different and better form because it would have learned from its mistakes. Life is exciting

      Ah yes.  I agree with this one totally.  It really helps one realize how minute humans are on this enormous planet.

    Well, planning surprises for my wife and children always gets me excited. I am constantly planning new surprises and just to think of it really excites me.

      I love preparing surprises for people.  It always makes me so giddy to hold back the surprise.

    I know am late,but i still wanna say, the most exciting thing in life to me is not knowing whats coming, not knowing what the future really holds for you. Not Knowing that you can be one foot in the grave, by tomorrow,or becoming rich overnight. Life is so unpredictable, and am not afraid were it leads. Life is what it is. Free flowed
