It was my 26th Birthday last week, and I had such a beautiful day.
I didn’t plan much. Just treated the day like any other day, and was wonderfully surprised at how the day turned out because I had no expectations.
Have you ever been considerably disappointed, because you expected so much from an event like new years eve, valentines, a birthday or anniversary and things didn’t turn out the way you thought they would? Or someone dissapointed you because of their actions, when you expected so much more from them?
I am slowly learning to have less expectations, of people and of situations. Here are some quotes I found which sum it up nicely.
“If you expect nothing from anybody, you’re never disappointed.”- Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
“The best things in life are unexpected – because there were no expectations.” – Eli Khamarov
“I’d rather be pleasantly surprised than fatally disappointed.”
― Julia Glass, I See You Everywhere
