The Pitfalls of “Great Expectations”

I have been slowly reading Dickens’ “Great Expectations.”  Inspired after a recent night’s reading, I went to the microphone to record my thoughts on the possible conundrum of creating expectations that are too great to meet and yet, too painful not to be met.  I offer another approach to the turmoil of setting expectations, when trying to live a purposeful life. I hope you enjoy and can put into use in your own life.
