Expectations will not kill you dwells on the feeling of failure when we realize we did not reach our goals. OSA +MUJIKA orchestrates a party as a metaphor to illustrate the emotional imbalance created when we feel defeated because our expectations were not met. At this long-awaited party, we will find the one we have been waiting for… How many of us have spent the afternoon getting ready for a big party, elated at the thought of what the night will bring? To eventually return home saddened because none of our dreams came true?
Filled with hope and light, Expectations will not kill you transforms defeat into hope, thanks to the strength that allows us to stand back up and continue to fight to reach new dreams. In truth, we all live this way: continuously beat by our unfulfilled dreams, while fighting for new ones we will try to reach.
