Seats for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. were sold out so I decided to watch We Are Your Friends instead. I went in with zero expectations, and that made all the difference!
Now, while you continue reading, listen to this song:
Have you been disappointed by someone you love? Felt betrayed by your best friend? Realised that your job isn’t what you thought it would be? All this boils down to expectations. We expect something from everything. And we expect a lot from the people (and things) we love. But the moment you take expectations out of the equation, you set yourself free.
I know it is hard, if not impossible, to not have expectations. But what you can do is expect the worst. Once this is done, you are ready to face everything life has to throw at you.
And yes, this struck me after watching the movie. The secret to being happy is not to hope for the best, but to expect the worst.
Think about it while you finish listening to Cole’s Memories.
