Thanks for voting in this week's poll. Now, I finally have something to write about :).
Nothing ever goes as planned (at least for me). It's really hard not to get excited about something you really like. But every time I do get hyped up about something, it turns out to be a huge flop—most of the time. I mean, what's the fun in life if we don't have expectations?
But then, when I "least expect it", something drastic happens (in a good way). I don’t know about you, but this always happens to me.
So, is it better to expect things in life, or should you not have any expectations at all? It all depends on the situation. Sometimes, expectations are your motivation to keep on continuing. It's the source of energy that pushes you to carry along. What use is persisting if you have no expectations to work to?
But at times, it's better not to have any expectations. You can't always expect things to work your way. When you expect too much, chances are, the odds of having disappointment are much higher. Think about it—if you weren't expecting anything, and it does turn out to be a flop, you won't be much disappointed at all. Hoorah!
if I made any sense
All in all, I try not to expect too much out of anything. If it turns out great, then fantastic. If it turns out terrible, then too bad for me. Not much to lose either way, huh? Oh well, it's not like I'm expecting this blog to become super-uber famous or anything. -smiles innocently-
