I realized a couple of weeks ago that I am an anticipation addict. I have been one for my entire life.
I can give you loads of examples when I found that looking forward to an event was more enjoyable than the event itself - Christmas, rock concerts, vacations, college, dates, you name it. It saddens me when I think about how much time I spent looking forward to something that hadn't yet happened rather than enjoying the moment.
How do you break an almost forty-year-old habit? How do you teach a five-year-old not to start it?
