I looked up the word enthusiasm and basically it means someone who has a lively interest or passion, or someone who has extravagant religious fervor. Umm... that's me!
nCollins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged1. ardent and lively interest or eagerness2. an object of keen interest; passion3.

I'm happy to have the temperament God gave me. I would not want to go around looking sour and being pessimistic. Why spend a whole lifetime never being passionate about anything? God made a whole world of beautiful exciting things. Why not enjoy it?
My Father is a God of fresh mercy and grace that is new every morning. If that doesn't get you excited, what will?
I'm thankful God gave me enthusiasm!
