For those who've seen 500 days of Summer, didn't you think the "Expectations vs. Reality" scene was awesome?
Expectations are one of the key reasons for major disappointments in life. The more you don't meet what you expected, the greater the hurt.
I've learned to accept a lot of things this year. I know it's only October but 2009 has been a difficult year. It was really a matter of accepting life as it is. It was the first time I've lost someone who I loved so much. My Lola meant the world to me. Though she's not here physically, she has been making her presence felt. Well, to me at least. I think she's helped me get stronger.
You win some and you lose some in life. There are twists and turns in life. In those turns, you won't know what you'll see. Just let go. Don't expect.
I've been happy lately because of pleasant surprises in life. Not expecting makes life more enjoyable actually. :)
Don't be afraid of tomorrow. You might like it!
