Expect or Hope?

Do you know the difference between expecting and hoping?

Expecting is attempting or wishing to control. It often ends with disappointment.

Expectation leads to judgment.

Hoping is putting your wish out there. Hope is a prayer. A release. A recognition that you are not in control.

Hope leads to acceptance.

Good food for thought. It is a good thing we are not in control, even though many think they are. I agree that wishing to control often ends with disappointment. I can attest to that fact. It was only when I did accept, that I now have Hope. Thanks for your insight.
