Day 13
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.
