There was a great saying some Buddhist or something like that said, and it went something like this, "Make no appointments and you'll have no disappointments." I'm sure it doesn't work in the employer world, but in the rest of your life, if you expect nothing, then anything else is a bonus. You are better off focusing on experiences, rather than expectations. That is just the way I feel. Experiencing life, rather than placing a label or a judgment on it, just let it be. It is what it is.
