Anticipation is the act of looking forward: pleasurable expectation: the visualization of a future event or state.
I have decided that I am finished with the New Year's resolutions, as of 2009, I am going to have anticipations. At my tender age, resolutions have become too frustrating, too self defeating and not much fun. Anticipations on the other hand offer an element of surprise, expectation and promise. I'm ready!
So, my anticipation list for this year, or maybe until July 1st, or maybe for life is:
1) Relax more and gain more creativity in the process. Create!
2) Spend more laugh time with my grand babies. Welcome my new Sweet Pea in late May
3) Lose a pound a week until I feel better about looking in the mirror... breathing in my clothes is important too.
4) Make 4 new friends
5)Bring some kind of joy, make some kind of difference in the lives of 10 people. Bake more cookies for Marines overseas.
5) Anticipate the blessings in my life everyday, count them and be thankful!
WHAT ARE YOU ANTICIPATING FOR THIS COMING YEAR?
I would love to know! Karen
