According to the NYT, “. . . you can learn to harness the good feelings that anticipation brings for your everyday life. Each night, for example, write down something you are looking forward to the next day, even if it’s small: a new book, a doughnut, a package coming in the mail.”
Or to put it another way, you should rehearse those words late at night, thinkin’ about how right the next day might be. (Thank you, Carly Simon.)
How did you anticipate happily this week?
Me? Krissie is coming to stay week after next, and that makes me so happy. We will talk and go out to eat and talk and set up my new office in the living room and talk and watch TV and talk and work on our books and talk some more. There will also be much laughter, and Krissie will open her Christmas presents (only six months late, she of course sent mine on time) and her birthday presents (only one month late, mine’s not until September) and we’ll laugh some more. So much fun with such a good woman.
