  • There’s a lot we anticipate. That new store coming to town. A first day of school. Final exams. A first day of work. The big day. And the NEXT big day. Wondering what lies beneath the veil. The work that happens behind the scenes. Sometimes we fear. Sometimes we're just giddy.

    We live for the future. The excitement of what’s next. Having something to anticipate gives us purpose. A reason to get up tomorrow. That’s as important as living in the present. So if you’ve not got something to anticipate, better go create something.
