We all come to count on people to do certain things for us, or to anticipate they will behave in a particular fashion given a certain set of circumstances. In a way, we draw the world around them, creating a kind of box. There’s a big problem here: It’s really our box and our creation and has little or nothing to do with reality.


Under the circumstances, should we be surprised when those closest to us step beyond the confines of the world we would bind them to and our sense of order shatters? Or that we become distressed and disillusioned as a result? We think Shakespeare said it best:

Expectation is the root of all heartache. William Shakespeare


Take a breath. Let go of expectation and watch a spirit soar.
