Excitement is the motivating energy of the world. We become excited by the prospect of something with the propensity to thrill. From meeting someone new, to going on an adventure, trying new food or the eve of an important announcement, excitement begins with a buzz and bursts alive like an emotional dance party. During difficult times, an exciting possibility sits like a beacon of light on the horizon. Excitement helps us to push forward, guided by the promise of happiness and reward.
