Expectations seem custom made to bring disappointment. In relationships, work, and play, we want specific results. Yet, so many factors can be set against us. If the expectation is not met due to an external source, you can do nothing to change it, so calm yourself and focus on what you can change – the internal. Life is full of challenges; we choose whether or not we are disappointed. Choose to learn from the challenge, react with intent to learn, and you may yet realize that expectation.
