What To Expect When You Are Expecting….

  
Life is short….!! Don’t we all know that?! And I guess since a very young age, we all had dreams and things we wanted to do/be when we grow up. And here we are, all grown-ups, adults, moms and dads. Did we make our dreams come true? Not yet? Almost….? 

We also expected this adulthood to be fun. We expected life to be fair, and dreams to be reality. We expected to have the right parter and the right life. Didn’t we all? We each have different expectations in life, yet at some point we all cleverly meet them (or at least some of them). But how about our daily expectations? We expect the day to go smoothly, the work to be done brilliantly. We expect our calls and messages to be answered, our invitations to be accepted. We expect our partners to be appreciative, supportive and encouraging! We expect our parents and family to respect our privacy, our doctor to see us immediately, the queues not to be so long and the kids to behave as adults. Should I keep going …..?! 

Why do we expect so much? Why do we dangerously give ourselves hope? Were we raised this way? Did our parents expect us to be this way? Therefore we also expect our kids to do so? While being positive in life is a much wanted and needed quality, I am not so sure about expecting. Somehow when we “expect”, we don’t allow doubts to creep into our plans. We want something and we want it now! We expect things to go our way, yet when they don’t, we are not so happy about it. 

What if we hit the stop button? We clean the page of expectations? We simply don’t expect anything anymore! Can you imagine how simple and easy life will be then? We will never anticipate someone’s reaction anymore. We will not be disappointed or frustrated anymore. We will just get what we get. We have a choice everyday to be whoever and whatever we choose. If something bad happens, we can choose to dwell on it, or accept it and move forward; we can start again. 

I personally struggle everyday with my expectations. I need to loosen up! With anything and everything. My goal and my focus will be to keep all this in mind and do better. I’ll probably never do it 100% right, but I will try to remember …. And I know I will be just fine if I keep on doing my best…!! What’s really a blessing right now, is this little place where I share a bit of what goes in my mind, with you! So thank you! And thank you for reading!! 🙂

    One time I read a quote saying that whatever the response from the Universe we are getting, we could always look at it from the assumption that it may want to help us in some way. Maybe it could also work with expectation outcomes?! 🙂 Not sure, but thanks for always writing these super interesting and thought-provoking posts, hun! :*
