… Now I’m left here, I’m left here, I’m left here, I, I, I ….
You know I’m totally singing that song now, thanks Spandau Ballet!
But seriously folks …
A good friend of mine has a very
weird interesting way of looking at life. Forget glass half full or glass half empty; instead, pretend there isn’t any glass at all!
Because that is her philosophy: she doesn’t look forward to ANYTHING. Not Christmas. Not moving into a new house. Not an upcoming holiday. NOTHING. Nada. Zip.
She says it works for her because that way if an event doesn’t live up to expectation, she doesn’t get disappointed. Because she had no expectations to begin with. For example, she and her husband were supposed to go to the UK this Christmas just gone but the company they were booked with went bust.
I asked if she was disappointed, and she said not really, as she made a point of not looking forward to things for this very reason (they had travel insurance so at least got their money back).
I think it’s a bit of a strange way of looking at things personally. To me, anticipation can be half the fun!
This pic best expresses MY outlook …
What say you?!
