I slowly understood why I wasn’t happy.

I wasn't happy because I always expected a result.

I looked at a book expecting it to teach me something. I went swimming for a day expecting it to help me lose weight. I sent a text message expecting it to be replied to the way I wanted to see it.

I posted a status expressing my mood expecting people to understand the same feeling as I do.

If all of these expectations are fulfilled, I will breathe a sigh of relief. But what if it doesn’t happen? I think I would complain or self-blamed about how things are not according to my expectations.

You know I think we are all the same. When we were young, we spent all afternoon watching ants moved house, waiting for the stones to bloom, and we didn't expect anything in return. So why can't we as an adult be the same?

Why don't try releasing our expectations and enjoy things the way they are instead of what we think they should be?

Believe it or not, everything has its own perfect timing and it happens for a reason. It's not like we can force it. So just free yourself, and let things take their own natural course.

This is quite a long reading, but if you reach here,

Free yourself and be happy, will you?
