Give more, expect less......a friend posted a list of simple rules to live by on FB this morning, give more, expect less were part of the rules. In yoga I teach about letting go of expectations, our expectations rarely are met and quite often leave us deflated and depressed.
The past few years I have tried to live my life by giving more and expecting nothing.......not even a thank you.
It's hard I admit, but if you give......your time, money, gifts, advice, talents, whatever without expectations, giving becomes so easy. What is it about our society that when we give, we expect? And those expectations lead to hurt feelings, anger, indignation, self-righteousness and more.
Give more, expect less......four words that could make your life easier, happier, and simpler.......
