Man. How many days, moments, years have been ruined by expectation?
I do it. I ‘m not ashamed to admit it. It’ s like this vine that grows inside of me….and I can cut it back but when i ‘m not paying attention that thing has grown into a monster again!
Dr. Tan, one of my teachers who has passed, once said something like “No Expectation, No Depression.”
I sat with that one for a very short while before I realized he was right as rain.
It is the earth friendly roundup I use on my inside vine when it overruns my eco system.
So why am I bringing this up today? As you may have guessed, I expected, was let down, then remembered my own advice. And within literally minutes I was feeling better again.
Want to know how I rooted out expectation? How I bushwhacked it?
It went a little something like this.
I got all bent out of shape because I expected something that didn’ t happen.
