I will be honest. I am bummed. Big time. A much anticipated visit from my oldest daughter and her family, we decided, due to unseasonal cold and rain to postpone. This extended visit has been planned for months. So we are looking at alternatives and a definite date far enough out that is a safer bet than May! Who knew?? As I try to understand why I feel so strongly, a clear reality has come forward. It is far easier for us to drive to the coast (which we love anyway) than my daughter and kids to come here. Now we have a virtual playground for kids and adults BUT truth is it is easier for us. The social/sports/church interests and values which we FULLY support are very important. So is visiting and celebrating with the grandparents, but if we don’t want to feel this way, it is just too much expectation to put on a few dates vs regular visits. Can any of you relate? Is there a date, occasion, celebration that you have invested so much that there is no flexibility (I. e. Ripe with opportunities for disappointment)? My head tells me “knock it off ... you know better ... stuff happens”. And it absolutely does! Like freak rain and snow mid-May in otherwise sunny, 80/90 degree weather!! So I am sharing to encourage all to do as I say and not as I have done.

I’m gonna get serious about not being so serious. I read this great book a couple years ago Unlearn: 101 Simple Truths For A Better Life by this rad guy @humblethepoet . I can’t recommend it enough. Well being books are so totally not in my wheel house. This one is so authentic, raw, and relatable. I revisit it regularly. If you have that voice in your head that tries to hold you back- read this. Put shit in perspective, fuck it, and just be happy. Simple truth #13 You are going to die, #58 regrets are stupid #59 nobody fits in #82 you’re a work of art in progress. Funny thing... guess who I ran into last fall in Toronto.... Humble himself. Life is funny like that. Laugh at it more. #unlearn #happier #love #be #instagay #reading #simplerules #instagood #expectationskill

I have spend a lot of time (over 2 decades at least) trying to be what I thought others wanted me to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Growing up it was the model Mormon young lady. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *As a teen it was the smart girly girl. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *As a young adult it was the girl that could hang with the boys and break the standard view of what women in engineering look like.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *As a stay-at-home mom it was the semi-crunchy involved in it all mama.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But none of those things fit me completely and some even hurt me giving me deep wounds. Finally all the expectations I put on myself became too heavy. I broke and had to find a way to live again.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I could have turned to other to find more wrong ideas for myself but this time I chose to ask God. He wrapped me in his arms and told me who he made me to be. Then he walked me though the healing of all the damage I did by not looking to Him. He did this all through love and compassion for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I am strong and have a fire that can't be put out. I no longer look to the world for what or where I should be. Instead I listen and follow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you feel the burden of expectations, turn to God and let them go. Stop believing the lies that you have to be "something" to be good or successful. We all have our own path to follow with Him as the guide. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #expectationskill⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #faithbringslife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #followyourownpath

Yes. That is me alright. Always doing exactly what i believe others expect of me. It doesn’t even have to be true. But i deliver anyway. Why? Because i want to be loved. Simple. That is why. But the cage is slowly opening. I wonder if i will make it out in time before i die and i start all over again..😆😆😆. . . #happiness

I hate expectations. The thing is I gave up on expectations of others, got tired of being let down. I have high expectations for myself...ugh. I'm pretty rough on myself. I need to stop that, I'm not perfect and that is ok. This week I'm going to try my hardest to accept the path and not get discouraged. #expectations #expectation #expectationvsreality #expectationsvsreality #expectationtherapy #ExpectationHangover #expectationshurt #expectationhurts #expectationalwayshurts #expectationskill #expectationscausedisappointments #expectationsKillMe

(VENT BELOW) LOVE KILLS, BUT SO DO EXPECTATIONS. . . Sometimes expectations come as a bright ray of hope, keeping our human and hopeful side alive during a storm passes over heads, which never seems to end. In the end, when the squall passes, you look over the destruction it has caused around you, and then you look at yourself. You've hardened, changed. You discover a whole new layer in your persona. And you feel good. Who would've thought that a boon like 'expectations' could turn into a curse? Well, it happens when you link them to sentient beings who have the power to prioritise one similar being over others i.e. humans. They say unrequited love hurts the most. But infact, it is unrequited expectations which do so. How? Whenever people express their feelings for their beloved, they expect the feeling to be returned. A person expects something out of another, thinking of him/her as his/her friend, bestie, a brother or a sister, but the person doesn't fulfil the expectation, only because the other person doesn't think the same of the expecting person. This feels just like, if not worse than a colossal heartbreak. And the irony is, it keeps happening again and again. You meet someone, become friends, the person gains your trust, you begin to think of him/her as your friend, bro/sis or more, then you start expecting things. It starts out small like, you expect the person to greet you everytime you catch each other's eyes, but soon they spirals out of control. And in the end, the person ditches you by saying- "We weren't even close." And the vicious cycle goes on and on. Maybe we're at fault. Maybe we expect too much. Maybe we think too much. Or maybe not. tags- . #poetry #love #writersofinstagram #quotes #poetrycommunity #poem #writing #poet #poetsofinstagram #writer #igwordporn #globalpoetcult #spillpoetry #engravedinink #heartofpoets #abodeofpoets #avoicefromfaraway #poemsporn #writerporn #thoughts #quotestagram #poetryisnotdead #expectationskill #writersofmirakee #life #follow #poets #wordsofwisdom #writers

Stop pining about how it should be and start accepting things as they really are. Make this shift and open yourself to a mountain of joy, it's the shift in belief that makes this happen. Sure, we all want things to turn out well, but it doesn't, a lot of the time, but how you believe and start to work through it, on it, makes a difference in your own peace. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #attachment #attachments #attachmentstyles #attachmenttheory #attachmentDisorder #attachmentpatenting #AttachmentsQuotes #justinstum #stgeorgeutah #advice #instawisdom #wisdom #healthychoices #transformation #breakingthehabit #expectations #willpower #noexpectations #expectationsvsreality #highexpectations #greatexpectations #addiction #recoveryquotes #expectations #expectationsvsreality #expectationshurt #expectationscausedisappointments #expectationskill #expectationsKillMe
