Great expectation of things in life = great disappointments.
Simple expectations of things =little disappointments.

Great expecting leads to stress and let downs.

Simple expecting leads to happiness and up-lifts.

So expect a little get alot

expect alot get a little.

so true!

I agree Barb, if we don't expect too much, then everything that comes along is a bonus. Good read!
