We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life,
when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be
enthusiastic about.

That is just so true. Enthusiasm is my engine of life, the very essence of that, that makes me tick.
Fortune favors the brave.
Tickling is no laughing matter.

I can be pretty enthusiastic about comfort and luxury. Big Grin

Seriously though, I find the biggest threat to my personal happiness is boredom. Thankfully, I am easily amused and rarely experience boredom.

Jon, I think you said it better than Mr. Kingsley did.

Brenda, we are a lot alike. Boredom is seldom a problem for me also because I make use of my time at every turn, even if it's with what others might consider time-wasting stuff. I try not to waste any of my life.

I am with you Brenda. I am fortunate in that I have so many different handwork avenues to occupy my days. I have a need to keep my hands busy which keeps my mind busy and so it goes..... Smiling

Enthusiasm and enthusiastic is a new word for me, although i understood it I have never written it before. Now after I retired, enthusiasm is my life. Many of my friends and family have told me to take it easy and not to make my hobbies become something that must be done. I think they are afraid that one day I will drop dead in the middle of "having fun" with my sewing machine or into a full wheelbarrow of horse manure. What better way to die
