Expect the unexpected

Do you ever consider just how many dependencies we accumulate?

Dependence on your phones, on that morning coffee, on that drink at the end of sometimes seemingly pointless day, on validation or assurances from other people, your job, certain events, on some level of security, we draw comfort from things being the same, I guess that’s what they call stability, something I have never known, on things being a certain way – so when the element of surprise comes in (and yes, we need that too) it feels like your world has been upside down and you have lost your bearings.

It seems bewildering that in this unstable, ever changing world we even allow ourselves to have any expectations. So many experiences take us completely out of our comfort zones and makes you question everything. Yet, after the dust settles, there we go, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
