Wednesday Wisdom

At first glance, this might seem sad. But for a type-A hyper control freak it's really a breath of fresh air. A girlfriend once told me, relative to guys of course, 'have standards not expectations' and it was so profound to me...and applicable to all areas of my life. Yes, not having expectations can be the defense mechanism to not being let down or hurt, but it also allows you to stop and enjoy the moment a little more. You see the good things and appreciate them as opposed to comparing them to what you 'wanted' or how you thought it 'should' be. Having standards just allows you to stay true to yourself at the same time. So stop. Don't have any expectations for today. Just let it happen.
