Daily Dose of Inspiration – Vorfreude


Vorfreude : Noun. Vorfreude f (genitive Vorfreude, plural Vorfreuden) joyful anticipation.

If you could bottle and sell an emotion, it just may be the joyous feeling of anticipation or Vorfreude before a happy event.

Anticipation is looking forward to something that is set to happen in the future. It’s sitting on the edge of your seat. It’s watching with eyes wide open, waiting for the scene in front of you to unfold. It’s that feeling you get right before you do something and you don’t know how it will go, but you’re optimistic and excited.

Feeling the anticipation is being one step closer to your goal. These types of feelings seem to be reserved for special moments in life, but imagine if you could maintain this ecstatic feeling more frequently?  Suppose you could trick your mind to think that this feeling could happen once or twice a week?  How happy would you be?  If you are happy and thinking clear concise thoughts about exactly what you want in life, there’s
a good chance it will manifest into the physical at a faster rate.

The trick is to be as happy as you can be as often as possible.  Happy people are happy for a  reason.  They are the ones that are most likely to get what they want in life eventually.  They have learnt to bottle that feeling better than most, and reap the rewards of their hearts desire the fastest. Remember, eventually you get what you ask for in this life, which is where the phrase “be careful what you wish for” came from.  Happy, positive people ask for and get events in their life that make them feel good. 

Be happy, think happy thoughts and when you find yourself smiling for no reason because of the internal make believe happiness be sure to consistently ask for what you want in life, in time it will get there in one form or another to make your dreams come true.

Vorfreude 🙂

      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
