"Expectation is the root of all heartache."

I just saw this quotation in my twitter stream. It struck me as though someone had slapped me upside the head. I've had some unmet expectations lately, and they have brought me down.

Antidote? Live in the present moment, even though that includes an incessant whine from a power tool next door on a day too hot to close the windows. 86 degrees in mid-December. Sorry to those buried in deep drifts in the upper midwest!

I am mindful, at this moment, of so many blessings that outweigh a couple of unmet expectations.
