Great Expectations

Have you heard the advice on how expectations can affect your happiness?

It’s usually meant to advise against setting yourself up for disappointment by having expectations that are bound to fail. And these expectations are most always about others and their behavior.

But what if instead, we had expectations for how we’ve decided to see the world? What if we expected to look for the bright side in situations. What if we expected to be delighted by how happy we can be just from deciding to be.

What if we used our expectations in a way to work for us?

If you expect to be happy tomorrow, what’s going to stop you?
