Anticipation

Here we come!

This is my first opportunity, for many weeks, to sit and write. The sitting feels marvelous and the writing feels strange.

Just like anything we do, the more we do it the more comfortable we get. Today, I feel as though I’m outside of my groove. So, I’m just going to write anyway…

I realized that I feel just like a kid on Christmas Eve several times a day. My stomach rolls with excited anticipation of a project or I think of living in the woods or I smell that fragrance from an infant.

This makes me wonder how people who have everything they ever wanted find happiness. It’s the wanting that makes for the best feeling just as Christmas Eve is the true holiday peak.

My good friend Jordan and I have much in common and we both recognize and embrace this excitement. The first snowfall, hearing a favorite song on the radio, beginning a book we’ve been wanting to read, all give us that giggle in our guts. He thought it would fade with age but now realizes it doesn’t have to.

The coolest part about the giggle is that it happens over little things that we anticipate. I get them when I watch birds at my feeder or when an infant laughs out loud for the first time.

Now tell me, aren’t those little things the big things? I guess the people who have everything are those who notice and enjoy as many moments as they can. Anticipation is the answer. When one anticipates happiness they have it.

Have one great big happy day!

  1. Feeding that child inside is essential to being content in life, isn’t it? I think too many adults get too wrapped up in trying to act like an adult and forget that what they feel inside is very personal and also very important to accept, as long as it isn’t harmful to another person.
    Live, love and laugh, is a good motto to live by, especially with all the things people have to worry about. It helps keep one sane.

Tell me something good...
