It is my experience when I have expectations I set myself up for disappointment and hurt. I know what you are saying. Hmmmmm …. How about substituting the word “goals” for expectations? Just a thought … This quote brings to mind a recent text conversation when my bio sis accused me of putting expectations on her when I pointed out she doesn’t text, call, or answer either when I text or call. I on the other hand called and texted her in an attempt to bring substance to our relationship and communicate. I seemed to be beating my head against a stubborn brick wall. Soooooo …. yeah I have struggles with the word expectations.

No problem, Amy. This is why I used that word deliberately. It only has that negative touch because we identify pressure with it. We make it negative. But actually we should have expectations on life because that makes us look for opportunities to go for goals and dreams! When we have an expectations on something the belief in it is much stronger. Btw. I did not talk about having expectations on others… I only meant life and our own journey through it. 💖

Ahhhhh…. Nice!! Using that word in that context makes sense to me. You have given me thought to chew on today as I go on a very challenging hike. Today I begin getting my feet back on Solid Ground as I chase the Blues Away. Thank you, Erika.

This is one of the things I so honor and love about you. You take your time and feel your emotions but the point comes when you stand up again and get back to life while reordering the things that happened. That’s why nothing can really ever beat you down. Take care on your hike, dear 💖

It is also our conditioning that makes us think that the word expectation is negative. I really am going to change that conditioning today. And I have you to thank for doing so. This is powerful stuff! Wow!
