Expectations (Eggs-pectations)

Assorted colorful beads coming out of an egg shell.

I love encountering the unexpected, but only when the unexpected is better than the expected.  We have all had times when we’ve gone to a movie and were pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be better than we expected, or cooked a meal that thankfully ended up tasting far better than it looked. We have to be careful about expectations, however, because it is easy to set ourselves up for disappointment when we pin our happiness on them. It is probably best to not take our expectations too seriously and to keep them light and flexible.  After all, we don’t want our happiness to be determined by what’s inside the egg.  So, let’s just crack the egg open and be delighted with whatever we find, knowing that it will be for our highest good.
