Thinking about Valentine’s Day in the past.
I remembering being in elementary school, spending the week cutting up construction paper and creating a personalized valentine depository. The little red mailboxes hung off the front of all the kids’ desks in anticipation of the big exchange.
And there’s the key word — the key FEELING…
The countdown was on. It was just a matter of time before the cute girl in class dropped her special message in my waiting box (I did not mean for that to sound so dirty).
It mattered not that she had no other choice but to give me a card. (To keep everyone’s self-esteem propped up, every child was required to exchange a valentine card with every other class member.) Nor did it matter that she had given several other boys and girls the exact same card (lots of duplicates in those card sets).
What mattered was that feeling…
Whether it’s a valentine, an upcoming vacation, or a promise of a new idea, the feeling of anticipation indicates that you are tapped into the same infinite Source Energy that created the universe and everything in it.
That’s why it feels so wonderful. Anticipation reflects alignment.
To live your version of a Very Cool Life, this feeling of anticipation needs to be a regular part of your life.
You need to live in the expectation of good things coming to you. You must be able to feel the excitement of manifesting your desires flowing through you before you can ever expect to see them. You must YES to things that you want to do.
As I write this and tap into the memory of a Valentines Day that took place over thirty years ago, I can still feel those old butterflies taking flight in my stomach. My point is that you can always find the feeling of anticipation, no matter what your current reality looks like. You just need to be looking for it and take the time to find it.
And when you find it, allow yourself to bask in feeling for a bit.
