Happiness and Expectations

What actu­al­ly brings hap­pi­ness is the con­trast between what you have now and what­ev­er you were just doing.

When you real­ize how pow­er­ful expec­ta­tions are, you put as much effort into keep­ing them low as you do into improv­ing your cir­cum­stances. Hap­pi­ness, con­tent­ment, joy … all of those things come from expe­ri­enc­ing a gap between expec­ta­tions and real­i­ty.
