I've been looking forward to a lot of things lately. I wouldn't necessarily say that any of them could be placed in the "momentous" or "earth-shattering" category, but I still await their arrival with anticipation, and regardless of how important they may end up being in the long run, I'm still excited. It's good to have something to look forward to; it means you're looking up from you're day-to-day life in order to see what is waiting for you just over the horizon. Even if what you see in the distance remains unclear, that's what makes it so exciting-- it's an adventure!
What am I looking forward to? My list may sound simple, and a little silly, but I still find adventure and mystery in it. Trying out the cheap pair of skis I bought on Craig's List, spending a random Saturday at Blackhawk with some friends, playing volleyball on Sunday nights, finally being able to have a conversation in German, the first pitch of the year, beer and peanuts at Coors Field, the first time I walk outside this Spring and smell rain-- my list could go on and on. Simple, yet satisfying.
What is life like without looking forward to something? What would the future look like without goals? That's one thing I intend to not find out!
Here's to Days Just Packed with anticipation.
