“What I want is what I've not got,
And what I need Is all around me.
Reaching and searching never stop”
Dave Matthews lyrics from “Jimi Thing”
Since the heart thing….I have found that having “no expectations” is how I survive. Having no expectations serves me well in creative artistic endeavors, medical tests and outcomes and most especially personal relationships. Living without any expectations of anything or anyone means I can NOT be disappointed. Any and every outcome was acceptable because I refused to have any anticipation of how it could or should be. But there is a fine line between expectation and wanting! I want lots and lots and lots of things, money, health, loving relationships but expecting they will happen is a different thing. The constant mantra in my head is, the only things I will ever be able to change are my own feelings. But maybe…just maybe I could have a wild expectation of myself every now and again.
