The anticipation of something happening is almost always a much more delicious experience than the actual event.
Visualizing all of the exciting recreation for that upcoming vacation, planning the wedding of the century, working towards that degree which promises so many job opportunities, or merely dreaming of the time coming up when things will finally settle down. There’s an intoxicating electricity in all of the planning, dreaming, and visualizing. Life is truly so much more vibrant in the journey to these destinations.
After all, haven’t you realized how once all of the anticipation is over, the vacations, the jobs, and even wedding ceremonies aren’t quite as magical as they were in our imaginations?
Maybe we shouldn’t try to rush through the lead up so fast. Perhaps life really is about the journey more than the destination. It’s certainly a whole lot of fun riding along that journey in anticipation of something to come.
