It’s broke. The thing works intermittently so I know it’s there, but today it isn’t working.
My excitement button is broken.
I haven’t the energy to get excited about anything. It’s been this way for a while, but today I realized that it wasn’t something I consciously was aware of. As I look back over that last several weeks, I now see that it’s been broken for a while. I am not sure when it broke. It just is.
Have you ever experienced a time in your life where good things are happening but you just don’t feel any joy around them? Have you ever had a time where life felt like things had evened out but experiences or things just didn’t generate a response like excitement? It’s a weird feeling to think about the things in past that got me excited only to have them happen now and it feels like no big deal.
Am I too tired? Am I too apathetic? Am I too calloused? I am not sure.
Where is the joy? How do I get it back?
Do you have joy? Excitement? What get’s your juices flowing and give you joy or excitement? Drop it in the comments!
