It’s funny how we expect things- we foolishly think we can anticipate the future. Ha. We have these set up rules or thoughts that automatically fill our brain. No matter what we do or other people do, they will either shatter what you had hoped would happen or they totally exceed the expectations you had in your mind. What is hard is to just be in the moment. How do you let go of expectations and do that?
When I was a single gal, I remember asking my brother and his wife, “What was the biggest thing you are learning or have learned being married?” Their response, “Don’t have expectations. You’ll be disappointed every time.” Wise words, I must say. But how do you implement that in reality? You will always expect a certain outcome. Maybe it’s about being open minded and thankful for whatever you got.
Hmm…my deep thought for the morning. How do you deal with fallen expectations?
