Expectations hinder us.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

Often we have an idea of how we want things to be or how we want others to behave. Our desire is clear to us and we may reluctant or unwilling to accept anything else. Our firm expectations make other results unsatisfactory.

If we didn’t have a preconceived notion of what should be, what actually does happen might seem just fine. The failure of life to match our arbitrary standards causes us to reject what is. Our resistance gets in the way of enjoying reality.

Today’s message stresses the wisdom of going with the flow. When I find the good in what does occur rather than critiquing it, I’m like to be happy with life. Releasing expectations, I give Creation greater freedom to surprise me with blessings.

How about you? Do you often have set expectations?
