I recently shared with a friend how I had let go of my expectations at an early age in life. This practice taught me to appreciate the moment and be grateful for what I have, rather than focusing on what I don’t have. It was a hard lesson to understand and grasp at a young age but I am so grateful to witness the person that I have become.
When we live without expectations, we are happy no matter what. We are overjoyed when we are treated well but more importantly, we remain neutral when we receive a setback.
Observe yourself when you’re setting expectations for yourself, towards others and learn to start managing them. You will feel liberated, lighter and free.
Hope I have helped to shift your being just a little bit.
