    It Is Free

    This morning I got a message: "Princess, when you love what do you expect?" Love is a state of mind and it can not be paid. There is the popular saying: "Love is paid with love." Not always, in my opinion love is free. You should give it without expecting anything...Love is not...

    How Do I Know?

    Generally speaking, we all have both: wishes and expectations. I tend to use the word "wish" to express what I'd like to experience in life. I often say I don't have this or that expectation, meaning that I'm not making demands. I feel this is true of me, especially when I'm...

    The First Step Of Enlightenment In Interpersonal Relationships Is To Abandon Expectations.

    Oh the possibilities. The ...potential.. The dreams... That I will punish and hurt for if you don't deliver to me when you tease me like an unsuspecting fool I will ruin you and bury you if you do not give me my hearts content Ok maybe not. But this is how most people live in...

    The biggest disappointments in our lives are

    often the result of misplaced expectations. This is especially true when it comes to our relationships and interactions with others. Tempering your expectations of other people will greatly reduce unnecessary frustration and suffering, in both your life and theirs, and help...

    For My Life.

    I am not a complainer or whiner.  I was told a long time ago that life wasn't fair, so deal with it.  You have to make the best of every situation you are in and change the things you can.  Oh, and also, if you can have a little fun while your doing it, it makes doing more fun...

    There are hundreds of possibilities

    for any given situation. So why expect the situation to go in a particular way? When we insist on a situation to go in a way we want, when we insist people to behave in a way that suits us or behave in a way that makes us happy, it becomes binding and will hurt us when that...

    I think that we forget the dark underside of

    Valentines Day - expectations. How many of us harbor unrealistic expectations of what this day should be? How many spend the evening in a fog of anger or hurt because these expectations were not fulfilled? Did we expect a ring but received roses? Were we not kissed in a certain...

    Because so many people have let me down.

    Even the ones I love dearly have let me down. My rule has been no having expectations but recently I set it too high so now I'm falling so hard because I broke my rule.

    Instead of expecting something in return,

    accept.. Accept the situations you are in, accept the work you have to do, accept the way people are, accept the way this world is, accept the way you are.. Expectations bind us, whereas acceptance is so freeing.. I used to have expectations, but now there's only acceptance. No...

    Every day I look at life in a new way,

    my eyes don't strain nor do I feel pain. After waking up from a nap I was hungry. So I went in the kitchen where my parents were making food. They said they didn't make any food for me. In some ways I was expecting that. With little to no expectations from people I rely mostly...

    Expect The Unexpected

    Counting on others doesn't really work for me. I have to rely on myself. It's great when people help you out. It really is. But they have their own worries while you have yours. Murphey's law states that anything which can go wrong probably will go wrong. It's a war reference. I...
