"Expectations are premeditated resentments."
~ Popular Saying ~
Sometimes we set out to do a job thinking it will be straight forward and easy, and perhaps it begins that way, but often, complications arise, and we find ourselves frustrated, and unsure how to proceed. A desire to quit may erupt within us, partnered with anger, or we might try to force something that doesn't want to move. We feel wronged somehow, and undone.
But the only way through is through, and the problem is not in the unfolding of the experience at all, but in our having had expectations in the first place about how we think it should have been.
Things rarely, if ever, turn out the way I think they will,
so I stop thinking and let whatever comes come.
