Expectations

“Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.”  ―    Alexander Pope

“I find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep my expectations.”  ―    Bill Watterson

I grapple with managing expectations. I have all these beautiful images in my mind yet somehow when it unfolds, it doesn’t play out as perfect as I imagine it to be. Disappointment and irritation start arising.

If we can somehow manage our expectations, we will be happier. Any suggestions? Well, for one, maybe curbing the day-dreams might help… let nature take its course.
