The Unexpected

I expect that you are wondering about the title of this post and what it is going to lead to in terms of content.  Well, expect the unexpected because that’s what living a successful, happy life is all about.

The minute you feel you have to know what to expect is the minute you begin to lose control of your potential to be happy and feel fulfilled.  Pretty strong statement…here’s why I feel very strongly about it accuracy.

When you expect there are no surprises.  And, when you don’t get what you expect there is almost always disappointment.  Well, the last time I checked, disappointment is usually not synonymous with happiness and fulfillment.

If you really think about it, the moments of your greatest delight, excitement, or wonder came as a result of the unexpected.  You were expecting a terrible diagnosis and got a clean bill of health.  Remember the delight you felt?  You were expecting your favorite team to lose and, low and behold, they won!  Remember the excitement?  You were expecting another mundane view of the world and looked out the window and saw the most beautiful sunset ever!  Remember the wonder?

Live for the unexpected and you will begin to expect true happiness and fulfillment.
