Sweet Anticipation

I feel like it's Christmas Eve, and I'm 8 years old again. This time, however, I'm hoping for no surprises, as I placed the order myself and don't want to find out "Santa" made any errors.

I'm waiting for a package I ordered yesterday with a mess load of super cool (and pretty darn expensive) scuba diving gear. And when it gets here I'm sure I'll have a great time getting to know it and then taking it on hundreds of dives. But right now, I have only the sweet anticipation of something I've been looking forward to.

For as long as I don't have a choice I'm going to enjoy the anticipation! Often it turns out to be the best part. And I don't want to miss any of it.

Our imagination, when used correctly, is capable of focus such that there is no wrong, there are no problems.

Of course when left to itself, imagination can see all the missing parts, the late arrivals, the bad weather cancelling the weekend. I've got 20 hours of anticipation left so I don't want to leave my imagination to itself!

I think my time is better spent focussing on the positive. And studying the owner's manuals I've already downloaded and printed. Tomorrow when I arrive home, there'll be a package waiting, holding objects I've dreamed for months and months about owning. I'm going to enjoy it so much!

Ah, the sweet anticipation.
