Anticipation

7:45 AM Edit This 12 Comments »
You know when you're waiting for something to happen and you get that rush of adrenaline? Mine always goes straight to dread. Why not anticipation and excitement?

THAT. I want THAT. And I think I've finally identified something I want to change.

Excellent. Now you can put the plan into action.

Sounds like you've recharged since your last post. Excellent! Anticipation and excitement is good. I'm glad you are looking forward to something.

The greater the risk, the greater the reward...

Making the plan is the hardest part, I think. :-)

I think we all have different things we dread and get excited over. Hopefully yours are the good kind!

What'cha changing? I'll change mine, too.

I don't know HOW to change it, darling Canary. I just know that I would LIKE for that to be different.

Interesting awareness. If you can't manage a complete shift how about a balance of the two?

Go on. Do it!

That would be a great thing to change. Perhaps try stopping yourself from anticipating the worst and focus on the positive.

I know easier said than done

Wait, I'm not sure I got all of this and, since everyone else did, I feel a little left out. Are you, in fact, anticipating something with dread right now? Is it your vacay? Also, is the anticipation issue the thing you want to change?

If it's the vacay at The Cabin Up North you're talking about, I'm not sure. You hinted that there might be reasons to be less than exuberant when you wrote last time that BabyZ "has no illusions" but is ecstatic anyway. Yo, if you were on your way to Disney World all by yourself, I might wonder why you were feeling any dread at all. I feel like I don't have enough information here -- unless I missed something, which happens a lot -- to see unbridled excitement as realistic or desirable.

I'm with lacochran: maybe it's best to work for balance (provided there is a reason for happiness and enthusiasm at all).
