My theme for the 2017 AtoZ Challenge is "Daily Thoughts".
Each day I will post a thought that comes to mind. The first word of the thought will correspond with the letter of the day.
Nelson, New Zealand
Expectation can breed disharmony and be the curse of happiness.
We have so many expectations in life, of places, things and people. If we are lucky are expectations are met. But if they aren't then disappointment sets in creating disharmony and sadness.
Recently on a trip to Nelson in the South Island of New Zealand, we took a drive to a few beaches. They were so beautiful until we landed up at one in low tide. I was a tad disappointed because it looked pretty barren and the sea was so far away. For a moment it robbed me of my happiness because I expected it to be just like the others. Instead I should've admired and appreciated its own beauty.
Rugby season is on in New Zealand. Whenever I used to watch the All Blacks (The NZ Rugby team) play, I expected them to win and on the occasions when they lost, it would truly ruin my day. How unfair that we all expect them to win every game. Now I watch their games for the thrill of the game for enjoyment of what it is and not for the winning or losing.
Expectation will you let me down
Or will you my every wish fulfill
Why rely on you if you make me frown
When I can rely on my own will
Expectation I have only a few
Life is certainly happier
For when a wish comes out of the blue
Then I am filled with wonder
