Expectations

I was slightly sad about how someone was talking to me recently.  A very very good support in my life had been detached and a feeling of loss is crowding my thoughts.

My husband gave me a wonderful piece of advice which has calmed me dramatically.  He compares our expectations to GRE exams. GRE questions start at very very basic level. If you solve it correctly, the next question is slightly harder, if you solve it, the question after that is slightly harder than it and so on.
BUT If you answer the 4th question incorrectly the next question is on 2nd or 1st level depending on your performance so far. Same is with expectations no?

When we meet someone, we have very basic expectations from a person. If the person fulfills some initial expectations then our expectations from them rise. If after sometime they are unable to  fulfill then, we become almost depressed and lower our expectations of them dramatically.

Being aware might help.
Keeping absolutely no expectations helps most.

Keep smiling 🙂

Recite poems :P

I am envious of people who can think of an apt poem for the moment and remember it correctly to say it.

I was watching some award function where rajesh khanna was asked to say a few words. He said a beautiful couplet and it was so so perfect.

I too have a wish to say such a poem. I recently read a sufi book which had the following poem -I don’t remember it correctly but it goes something like this.

Adam ko khuda mat samajh,

Adam khuda nahi

Lekin adam uske  noor se

Jyaada juda bhi nai

The Bucket List – part 2

Posted 24-03-2009 at 08:19 PM by sunayna

There are some things in life that you just have to wait for. I did. I waited for almost 2 yrs for watching “The bucket list”. My friend was supposed to download it for me since a long time but we just couldn’t set a date to meet. The movie is fantastic. I will be watching it again sometime soon.
Sometimes in your life you wait and in anticipation, you think so much about the thing that it grows into something lot better than it actually is. Somewhere halfway in the movie, I realized that I was actually watching it and I realized that even after this long a wait I was soooo very happy “inside” to watch it. The movie is amazing, no my life didn’t drastically change after watching it and I don’t think it will but I absolutely love watching Jack Nicholson.

    For a few things in life, however trivial or big, important or unimportant, once gets postponed.. always gets postponed…We are masters coming with stories to justify our stand.. friend did not download and so on… but then we need to realise they are stories..

    I used to do this with a lot things.. one common thing we all do, is replying emails.. we think we will reply later.. and do it really well… we will comment on this blog.. but later.. because I wanna write real good stuff.. right now is not the time..

    But my dear friend.. right time would never come…

    at a stance I wondered why you are preparing bucket list..later I got annoyed cos you are talking abt movie and in that you are promoting piracy..

    indeed the movie is beautiful.. would like to suggest one more.. try to watch “the world Fastest Indian” a kiwi movie staring Sir Antony Hopkins.

    anyways ..whats your bucket list ???

    anyway, wt u r referring to in the comment is that we procrastinate and that we shouldn’t.
    Point noted!!!
