I’m back from a wonderful vacation and my next pleasure trip, a weekend in Vegas with Holly, is already on the calendar for October. While I know that I will have a wonderful time in Vegas, being able to look forward to this trip is just as meaningful.
I play the “always having something to look forward to game” every week. Sometimes it’s a ballgame, time with friends, or something as simple as time with my son. The key is that I always have something that I can look forward to. It helps me to enjoy the present moment, even the ones that are not all that pleasant since I know this too shall pass.
So, what do you have to look forward to? Put something on the calendar now. Maybe a massage later this week or dinner with a friend. And while you’re at it, how about scheduling that next vacation or weekend trip away. You know you deserve it and the anticipation that comes with it.
