Looking forward to it

A family holiday.

A project.

Something you're training for.

Going on a date.

Finally graduating from that course you’ve been studying.

All fun when you do them.

But half the fun is looking forward to it.

That's I why I like to set myself weekly, monthly and yearly things to look forward to.

The catch-up session with friends at the end of the week.

The monthly check-in with myself and the projects I'm working on.

And the family holiday at the end of the year. A half-yearly adventure is good too.

The actual event is often short-lived but if you plan it right, the excitement of anticipation can be everlasting.
