  1. I live my life by this. I always find that when i start expecting things too much my progress starts to slow. Funny how backwards life can sometimes be.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Love the quote Joi. When we hold onto any expectation of how we think things should be or how they should turn out we are setting ourselves up for pain.

    Let go and Let life unfold exactly the way it needs to. I know, easier said than done.

  5. If any one is a Shakespeare, he or she wouldn’t be a dcedsneant of the English author or his brothers either!William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway had three children: Susanna (1583), and twins, daughter, Judith, and son, Hamnet (1585-1596). Since Hamnet died from the bubonic plague at age 11, Shakespeare has no recorded male dcedsneants who bear his name.Of course, the playwright was also the first-born son of John Shakespeare, a glover, and Mary Arden, of Stratford upon Avon. Besides William, John and Mary had five other children who survived to adulthood, including three sons, Gilbert (1566-1612), Edmund (1580-1607), and Richard (1574-1613). Since William was the only son who married and had children, and his only son died in childhood, there are no direct, legitimate male dcedsneants of either William Shakespeare or his brothers with the last name of Shakespeare.

  6. That is excellent and really profound, some would say its a sad way to live, i.e. if you never expect anything your never disappointed, but actually it is an excellent way of reducing anxiety. bearing in mind anxiety is the fear of something which has not yet happened. by living without expectations we actually live happier more content lives.
