We Have Nothing to Look Forward To

Aside from the virus that acts like “The Invisible Man”, the endless unemployment, the increasing violence and the tremendous insecurity we live in, beyond all that – there’s something else.
We have nothing to look forward to.
We don’t have any important event to get dressed up for, we don’t have any special occasions to mark in our calendar, no graduations and exciting things to look forward to, we basically, have no plans.
And as small as it may seem, even planning what to wear to an event, makes us look forward.

They say life happens when we look forward to something, which completely contradicts the “Here and Now” theory.

They say life happens when we look forward to something, which completely contradicts the “Here and Now” theory.

Only, there’s a real reason as to why it is important to plan and look forward to things.
When we wait for something good to happen, our brain induces dopamine, the same hormone that makes us feel good, even if in reality, our expectation was not filled yet.
Beside the dopamine, which is very important to induce, the expectation to events is extremely vital for our motivation and for us moving right ahead, because when we have something to look forward to, we will avenge ourselves out of bed.

Covid brings a lot of wonderful things with it for those who are willing to dare and relinquish the external certainty, in any case the only thing that’s certain is that we’re all going to die sometime (I apologize for being blunt) – that’s the only certainty we all have.
Nevertheless, it’s definitely a good idea to get out your calendar and invent things to look forward to because we all want, and deserve, to feel good in our lives.

Maayan Ben Zion

When I was 32 years old, my family and I went through a terrible crisis, when my 3-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. I found myself most of the time in the hospital, while I had a 1.5-year-old waiting at home, who also needed a mother.
After a long and exhausting time, we found grace and won the battle. My daughter is now 21 and fabulous.
This crisis forced me to look at my life from a different perspective, and choose another path, open myself up to questions I never dared to ask.
As a part of the process, I left my job as an attorney and began learning coaching. My heart started beating again.
