Broad Band and expectation

Before I decide to subscribe to broadband, there are a few questions that were spinning around my head. First it’s a minimum 12 months subscriptions, meaning that if I were to decide to cancel my subscriptions earlier I will still be charged the full 12 months subscriptions. Second, it’s the speed good enough? As there are comments from fellow friends that it’s not up to expectation.

Expectation is something that most of us will have. We buy something expecting it to perform to its specification. We visit our doctor hoping that they will cure us. We ate our lunch in a particular shop, hoping that it taste good. We date someone hoping he or she will be the one. The everlasting one, the one that will hold us when we fall. The one that will be on our side, acting as a beacon of lights, leading and directing us in the darkness. How many of us ended up with the “correct” person?

It’s because of these expectations that we will normally regret later. If events does not happen according to our expectation, we will start the “If else” cycle of thoughts. The thought, which will tie us down, blocking us from moving forward. Who is brave enough to stand up and say that they have never regret doing certain things? I could not; hence I am still sitting down blogging, hahaha. I have been reading books on Dhamma, hoping one day I will be able to learn the ultimate act of letting go. In the mean time, I will continue to use the broadband which actually perform to half of my expectation only. The devil inside me still cursing while the angel is resting……

Look at the fish, are they regretting that they should not have bite that little brown thing that was on the water surface.
