Expectations and Hopes

We generally expect a little bit of good from every day. I mean, at least, we hope the day to be good. This hope leads to expectations and expectations lead to great disappointments.

So never hope that something good will cross your way. Bcoz ‘goodness’ is a very rare entity in today’s times. Just stay neutral and let your days flow. If something good does turn up then let it be a pleasant surprise. 

My funda is that instead of expecting something and then being disappointed, it’s better to not expect anything or expect the worst and be surprised with the best. 

Because disappointment wilts me down in a deep dark tunnel of the most depressing thoughts and I find it difficult to fight it and come to the surface. Whereas pleasant surprises, they leave me in a good mood for days. 

The only problem right now is the wait – the wait for the good to come – that is testing me.

Day 21 Topic 21: Time

Time. It flies. It feels like we just started grumbling about Monday and then it’s Friday so soon. 

Time. It moves away. Like saying bye from a train pulling out of the station. 

Time. It takes u places. U never know u have journeyed so much until u look back at it. 

Time. It changes u. Like the metamorphosis of a butterfly. 

Time. It heals u and makes u stronger. U may not know it but u r much stronger today then u were yesterday. 

Time. It makes u put things into perspective. Like that retrospective walk on the beach. 

​Day 10 Topic 10: Reflect on something

 U know, U can’t really tell when u will get to see someone again or when u will get to talk to them again. 

U say u r too busy and that u will catch up tomorrow and before u realise it’s been too late. 

Don’t delay that visit for later
Don’t leave those things unsaid

I thought quotes like, “Life is short. Smile while u have teeth” is too cliché but my day today has given me enough to reflect upon it.
