The Enthralling Passing of Time

“Anticipation is better than the realization”. I have no idea who first said that quote, but I’m posting it and accrediting it to anonymous.

The daily prompt states, “when you are giddy with excitement, does time speed up?”

Hardly. If I’m waiting for something, the virtue otherwise known as ‘patience’ comes into play and must be exercised. If I’m in the moment of having a good time, 9 a.m. quickly becomes 5 in the evening. The before and during: an extreme discrepancy in differences.

Anticipating can be excruciating, but it depends on what kind of anticipation — positive and negative. Positive anticipation? The Xbox One will be released on November 22nd. I’ve had it preordered since July 6th. Can’t wait. An example of positive anticipation for a material object that’s an electronic device. Negative anticipation? Going to the dentist or preparing yourself to watch a St. Louis Rams football game. What kind of masochist wants to do either of the fun activities?

The post was prompted by the WordPress Daily Post.
