I Release Expectations
When we expect things to unfold in a certain way, it becomes more difficult to enjoy the surprises that have the potential to be huge blessings- Madisyn Taylor
Expectations can often lead to huge disappointments. When I decide in my mind the way things need or should go and then they do not turn out that way, I have set myself up for heartache. I am learning instead to travel and receive each day as it comes- to find the joy in every moment and to stop grasping for perfection. This does not mean I do not have dreams nor set goals. Instead it means that I enjoy the process, the day to day unplanned disruptions and unexpected pleasures. I focus more on the journey than the final destination, knowing that eventually I will arrive. It means being kind to myself and not pushing and driving myself to the point of exhaustion and fatigue to become, meet or accomplish an idea of who I should be or what my life is supposed to look like by now. I release myself from self-imposed expectations, and from others expectations too. I accept that I will become that person I am intended to be in my own way and in my own time, and I choose to welcome my story as it comes.
I am a lover of all things creative and beautiful. I enjoy nature, art, and things of the heart. I primarily express this love through writing, photography, and watercolor. I want to share my love of these things with all who are willing and wanting to receive them.
