"Expect" in life. Hmm, I expect food, water, air, and some kind of shelter. These are the bare needs of all humans as far as I know. I think that everyone in society should be provided the basic needs by "state" or "church". I expect to be happy in life because I am by nature a happy soul. I expect to die in the end and ove on to the next world. Those are my expectations.
Having too many expectations leads to too many disappointments. Finding happiness in the self is what I expect.
