with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

If so, you are worrying about tomorrow.

Those are worries about tomorrow.

Apathy, indifference, not caring...
It may sound insensitive for me to say, "I don't care,"

petty complaints, and idle chatter.
About those, I just don't care.

Just as in the comedies, a person who is in love
with the idea of love sees prospective partners
through the lens of idealism.
The reaction is, "This must be the one.
They are so perfect - the match of my dreams."

It's unlikely their friends think so.
So what happened? That person with the cute smile
was not much more than a mirror for the hopes and dreams
of the one in love with love.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
