"Never forget that anticipation is an important part of life. Work's important, family's important, but without excitement, you have nothing. You're cheating yourself if you refuse to enjoy what's coming."
— Nicholas Sparks
When I saw this quote I thought it was PERFECT. I've never read the book it's from. I adore all the movies made of Nicholas Sparks books. I think I'm going to go buy the Dear John book today and/or The Last Song.
Excitement and anticipation are so important. They are the things that keep us feeling alive and looking toward the future. Maybe you're looking forward to a package coming in the mail, a new job, finishing up a degree, or seeing someone special. No matter how big or small it is these are the things that keep our life going and make it feel like we have something to live for.
If you don't feel like you have anything worth living for just think of all the amazing opportunities you have in your future. You CAN do anything and make your dreams happen. Just believe in yourself. It can be so hard to see when your feeling hopeless. Do something that changes it. Surround yourself with amazing people who will support you. If you have something you want to do, DO IT, no matter how others feel about. If you think you're too old to go to school, think of all the older people who do it and love going back to school. If you think you're not smart enough, remember Bill Gate's dropped out of high school. If you want to be an actress but think you never will be able to, most famous people never thought they would. If you think you'll never amount to anything, think again.
