Do you have grandiose expectations for yourself? for your kids? your spouse? That is quite normal; however, we should learn to examine our expectations so we will have less disappointments. It will lesser your burden and the people around you.
Some Inspirational Thoughts:
“When we have expectations and things do not match up, we are very very disappointed. It is hard to yell, ‘Plot twist!' But, if we let go of those expectations and decide to observe our lives, observe our spouse and children. Without judgment, without strong emotions either way, we really can go and do what this quote says. I will read it again, ‘When something goes wrong in your life, just yell, “Plot twist!” and move on.' ”
“I want to encourage you to examine your expectations that you have in your relationships, that you have of yourself, your children, of your environment, maybe at work and think what would have happened if you could have some of those go. You will find, you will probably feel much less unhappy, much less disappointed and let down and will be fun to just observe what is happening. And it is liberating for the people in your life as well. They do not have to feel that judgment or that disappointment.”
