Things I Know: About Anticipation...



It's late in the day and I've been debating posting because I still haven't finished this blog post project from earlier in the week (so there's still time to make a suggestion or three!)... But there are things I know and things I want to write about and well, I can't resist the urge to write... 

This week I've been living with a lot of anticipation, and so I've come to know a few things about it. Here's what I know about anticipation...
  • Anticipation is delicious! It can be all-consuming and warm and fill you with tingly joy! Just delicious!!!
  • Anticipation is also a double edged sword. While it is delicious, it's very deliciousness has these side effects that are a bit painful. For one thing, it makes everything else seem dull and boring and mundane in comparison. It causes you to wish time away. It also has the magical side effect of slowing the passage of time to an ab. so. lute. crawl... Oh my goodness, minutes last hours and hours last days and let's not even go to that place where days seem to last years!
  • Anticipation gives you super powers! Suddenly everything is possible. Those things that used to frighten you will now be mere hurdles to clamber over in the euphoric state that anticipation releases.
  • Anticipation spells trouble for an insomniac because it won't allow an overactive mind to settle - there are all the lists of things that have to be prepared and all the lists of things that might go wrong... All the lists that come with anticipation... And of course, there's the whole days becoming years, and nights are always longer...
Yep, I've been living with anticipation. Specific events I'm anticipating (that I can't talk about yet, but an announcement is coming) and then the low hum of a change of fortunes that I'm sensing which is playing away in the background. The tingling anticipation of good around the corner. I can't quite see it yet, but it's as if I can smell it and it smells like freshly baked muffins. It smells so good and I'm so full of anticipation that I can barely keep a straight thought in my mind at the moment...

That's what I know about anticipation!

What do you know?

I love the anticipation of good things - sometimes it is almost as good as the event like going on holiday - the planning part is fantastic ! But generally the holiday is better isn't it.

I hate the anticipation of bad events - like going to the dentist - while it is never as bad as I expect it to be, I just hate it none the less !!!

Have a great weekend !
