251. What makes you excited?
It seems as we get older, we tend to lose that ability to get excited about a lot of things. I am no different then most. I do not have a whole lot of situations in my life that make me feel excited. Most of the things that make me excited are silly small things that most would find a little odd.
I get excited about getting into a freshly made bed with nice clean sheets. There is something so comforting about the clean-crisp feeling and smell of fresh sheets. I always sleep best on these nights.
Another thing that makes me excited are new socks. I love socks. I wear socks all the time. Day and night, regardless of the weather. It can be 100 degrees outside and you will find me wearing socks. The only few times I don’t have socks on are when I am at the pool, the beach or the occasional time I wear sandals or heels.
I want to say that travel is something that gets me excited. Internally I struggle between excitement and anxiety when we are about to travel. I am definitely excited when planning the travel. Once the day actually arrives however, the excitement changes to a pretty intense anxiety. We don’t even have to be flying for the anxiety to hit. Even if we are going on a road trip, the act of actually leaving is enough to trigger it.
If I had to pick one thing that I could honestly say brings me excitement each and every time it would be walking through he gates of Disneyland (or Disneyworld). I turn into an 8 year old girl every single time we are about to enter a Disney park. Seeing the castle for the first time on each trip always brings me this giddy excitement. It is the only place where for a brief time I can forget about the real world and all the stress and drama. My anxiety is distinguished and I can simply relax and enjoy.
