I am not sure in which category my feelings fall. Is it Anxiety? Is it Fear? Is it Apprehension? Is it Excitement? Or, could it be everyone’s favorite answer on a multiple choice test? Is it 'all of the above’? There is one certainty I can grasp, it’s the venturing into the unknown. I am a planner, educator, athlete and coach by nature so, I like the feeling of having my ducks in a row prior to departure. Reminds me of the quote, "By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail."
At the moment I am standing on the platform of ‘Unknown’ waiting for the next train. Maybe 'none of the above' should be my chosen answer. I will circle 'none of the above' on my test form and add the word, “Apprecitement”.
So ........................ it’s not a real word, but feels very real to me.
- Anxious: Uneasy and apprehensive about an uncertain event or matter; worried. Attended with, showing, or causing anxiety.
- Fear: A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
- Apprehensive: Uneasy or fearful about something that might happen.
- Excitement: The state of being excited. A person or thing that excites; stimulates or thrill.
I have spent hours cruising through the web to gather information as I wait, but it is not filling the void that this waiting game has created.
On a side note, I felt compelled to find the author of the Acid-Alkaline Diet Book, and I did. He resides in Switzerland and knew that paying him a visit was out of the budget. However, I could email him, and did! Thrilled to say that he has replied. That now equals 2 connections from half way around the Globe!!
