It brings chills to the string of your hairs.
It creeps up in unexpected times
It is the shaky trickling, crawling shoot of anxiety
Arriving at the most random times
Contributor of stress and massive deadlines
It is the waiting period.
The excitement of that exam.
The nervousness of giving a speech for the first time
The joy of welcoming a newborn into the world
The worry of incoming seniors for life after college.
The uncertainty of landing an entry-level job
The waiting. The unsureness. The manifestation of stress
The impulsivity of action
About to burst if not satisfied
It brings a space between waiting and getting there
Whether it ’s a goal or activity.
We need anticipation.
Because that’s where the adventure begins and end.
Thus, embrace and accept it.
Anticipation is a gift.
It cultivates patience.
It is scary.
But it helps with growth,
Spiritually. Emotionally. Physically.
