The easiest way to avoid letdowns and disappointments, is:
✔️ No, it’s not lowering your standards. That’s quitting.
✔️ No, it’s not releasing expectations. That’s an old wives’ tale.
✔️ And no, it’s not relinquishing all mortal desires. That’s an ancient religion.
It’s never tricking yourself into thinking that your happiness is dependent upon the things and events of time and space, or what other people think, say, and do.
So go ahead, aim high, expect a miracle, and want it all… 😘
