A big event can often bring excitement.

It doesn’t have to be Christmas. It could be a trip away with friends, an important gig, or a big match for the team you support.

The event itself doesn’t always live up to expectations.

Parents all around the country will be hoping that’s not the case, but some children will be disappointed tomorrow, just like the trip or gig or game won’t always end as you hoped it would.

But that doesn’t negate the excitement you felt, the hope, the buzz of anticipation.

Because it’s a feeling that stands on its own, separate to the outcome of the event. It might make a negative outcome harder to take, but that shouldn’t stop you embracing it.

Enjoy the excitement.
