My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.
Michael J. Fox
I don’t set my expectation too high anymore as I find out every time I expect and raise the bar, I get disappointed. Raising the bar low helps me with my present happiness. I know happiness can be fleeting but it does help my state of well-being. When I expect too much from family, friends, work and life in general and the outcome was not of my assumption — I get angry and mad. However, its okay to aim high on our expectations but be aware this could make us unhappy. So what mountain can you climb? The highest or the lowest mountain in the world? Be realistic. ~ Jenny Bichara

Hi there Jenny, great to meet you. I liked the analogy of the lowest or highest mountain, I think that explains things nicely and would be a good principal to follow in 99% of life’s scenario’s. Thank you for following my blog and for the likes, it was very nice of you to come over and have a look.
Looking forward to sharing some views with you, regards James 🙂
