  1. I like how you’ve turned this around and made it into something positive.


  2. Are you sure? Sitting on a fence post I turned. The sky greeted me.


  3. Learning not to expect so there won’t be disappointment. A wonderful gift. 🙂


  4. How you view it, indeed.


  5. Lovely Haiku!
    All things work together for our good.
    Every disappointment is a blessing.
    Great thoughts!


  6. Indeed my head is fair spinning–too many mem’ries I suppose.


  7. WordsFallFromMyEyes

    Hmm. Concise. I like this a lot.


  8. Yes, the first two of the Four Noble Truths. The rest of it is (3) suddenly understanding that it’s desire that causes disappointment and (4) learning how to not do that. Thank you for this concise observation


  9. Surrender, and desire will end without disappointment.
