What if... instead of torturing ourselves with that ever-expanding check list of things we need/want to do, things we are convinced will make us happier creatures, we just relaxed our expectations? What if we pressed pause for a moment and realized that maybe, just maybe, we might be fine with what we have. Hmmm... Novel concept worth chewing on. Check out Judith Warner's honest and humorous treatment of this "culture-clashing, anachronistic, out-of-this-world concept," namely the notion that we should "know [our] limits" in her Not-So-Great Expectations over at NYT's Domestic Disturbances. What do you think?
