Motivational Quote - Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

SparkPeople's Comments

Think about looking in a mirror. How many of us get depressed when we notice a new gray hair or a new wrinkle in our forehead? Now, take a moment to think about what you can’t see in a mirror…are you allowing wrinkles to appear in your soul? There are many ways that this can happen from worrying too much to not pursuing a life of purpose. One of the most common ways to wrinkle the soul is to give up enthusiasm. You should always be trying to show enthusiasm for whatever you do. Sometimes this is difficult…we might not like our job or we might be having difficulties in our personal life. When there is a bump in the road, one of the easiest ways to get back on track is to have enthusiasm.

In place of soul I think of my heart. I like enthusiam and any support I can garner to keep my enthusiam is another leap in my heart.

If you give up enthusiasm for life, you really do short-change yourself. Find some degree of joy every single day!

When there is a bump in the road, one of the easiest ways to get back on track is to have enthusiasm one day at a time

I would love to figure out how to be enthusiastic about my current knee problems that are keeping me from working out. I keep working on it, but the truth is I hate being horizontal.

This makes me really want to live each day to the fullest like it's my last, because I seem to get pulled away from who I really am.
