I look forward to working but look forward to my days off so I can write, bake, sew, play music, hang out with family/friends, whatever happens to be the current mood/necessity.
I look forward to summer vacation each year as my family sees new places, meets new people and experiences new things. I look forward to school getting back in session so the children and I can get back into a normal routine, where they go to sleep earlier and I can get a few moments to myself.
I look forward to the NaNoWriMo challenge in November when I pour my characters' hearts out in 50,000 words. Then I look forward to December when I take a total break from writing.
Christmas season is especially enjoyable since I get a few additional days to relax with my family. After they return to school in January, the business of writing resumes again and, by that time, I'm breathless with anticipation.
Life is about looking forward. It could be something which will happen in the next hour or two, the next day, week, month, year and so on. The important thing is to remember to look forward because, if not, an event from today might shatter our spirits completely.
