The past couple of posts as been me trying to explain this mentality or way of living. This concept or idea of not being so possessive of expectations, almost being free of them, letting your attitude and positivity guide you through life. It’s hard to explain, but how I see it, or how I comprehend it all is that you must know where you come from? Where have I been? But then you need to also think about where you are going? Where do I want to be? What do I want to happen? The more hardest part of this understanding is partly not only answering these questions but also try to harness the values of both the past and the future and how do I incorporate all of this in present.
Now is where it is at.
The past is in the past, and the future is far away, so far that you may not get the chance to see it. Be great now and remember there is always room to grow. I must sound like a broken record player, but the records do work.
The food expression comes to mind, “all your eggs in one basket,” when trying to explain this way of thinking. The food expression is referring to not having all your hope on one specific outcome or option. In life you have to be open. Spice things up. I guess I can see why people say to have a back-up plan, or a plan a, b, and c. I guess the back-up plan almost feels like your saying the main idea flew through. But the truth is that in life you have to adjust and be ready for things unexpected. To take a positive route to where you need to be rather than one that is filled with expectations and misconceptions. It’s like I can be stressed out but I also can be happy with where I’m at and where I’m going. The stress is only weight to carry for thought.
Short & sweet.
I am open to try these new flavors and I have no expectations on how great they will taste.
