To delight in lifestyle a lot more, embrace anticipation
“Looking ahead to anything can be just about as very good as encountering it” this is the initially sentence of the write-up “To appreciate existence additional, embrace anticipation” and it is the one particular that has remained most etched in my mind, immediately after looking at it I assumed: is it true?.
I went again in time, precisely throughout my 2nd year of center school, my Italian teacher was studying a poem by just one of the best Italian writers: Giacomo Leopardi.
The title was “Il sabato del villaggio” (Saturday night in the village) and talked about how very tempting the thought of Sunday was, but not so much Sunday itself.
[In the poem,] we are at the beginning of 1800 in a little village, it is a tranquil Saturday evening, all people is fortunately waiting around for the future working day, the day of relaxation: the youngsters cackle, the maidens sing, and the personnel return from function laughing. It is the happiest working day of the week and that is due to the fact the up coming day the passing of the several hours will carry extra and extra unhappiness, and everyone will start pondering about Monday’s work.
I try to remember pondering throughout that studying that there was practically nothing a lot more correct: waiting for a joyful event brings us far more joy than the celebration alone.
So I request myself, is it really worth it? We live lifestyle waiting for delighted times in a kind of dreaming trance, but then, when those people gatherings lastly get there, we neglect to essentially stay them. Is this what we have to aspire to? Should not we just cease fantasizing about the potential and start embracing the present?
