What Turns Me On

«  » by Dabbs
Okay, this question was asked of me by an interesting person.

You flip a switch and the lights in your home come to life.
You push a button and your computer wakes up and lets you see the world.
What turns you on? I'm not talking sexually....
I'm talking what makes you come alive? What makes you wake up and thrive?

What turns you on?;)

I'd like to take my answer and expand upon it.

Rather than "Adventure" I think "romance" would be a better choice, because it includes adventure. I think the term "romance" is limited in it's use by most people, who'd usually refer to it regarding two people in love. I think of romance more as the adventure of my life. Traveling to exotic places, surviving scary things, overcoming the odds, surprising yourself, learning, and yes definitely finding love. :) The prospect of a romantic life is what turns me on. And so far, I've lived more romantically than I ever could have thought possible!

It took me a whole day of thinking and questioning myself and then finally I asked a good friend who nailed it within seconds....

I come alive when challenged.

A mission, a purpose, someone to lead, energy to be moved. Something of serious worth to be created :)

Just this urge to get up. I can't explain it, 6.00AM roll in and that's me, up and awake. No matter how much sleep I missed the previous night... unless I am sick then I just sleep right in.

I don't know to be honest what makes me come alive. There's nothing I really feel passionately about. I just have this ticking clock inside of me that tells me I should be doing something specific, but I don't know what it is and I guess that drives me - trying to find what I should be doing. I want to help people but whenever I do I always mess up and get in the way. I am clumsy and unfocused in that regard.

Movement. Walks. Airports. Train stations. Lift off. Chugga chugga. New destinations and potential meetings. I don't travel nearly enough.

Coming across words that are right and true in the moment you need them. (I've found quite a few synchronistic posts in IS, thank you.)

Elements in art and nature that are transfixing.

Yes, the food! I sometimes joke that I incarnate just to enjoy some great meals. :)

Might you have a career in food?
