Different and perhaps better.

What we want and what we get often are not the same. We may have a fixed idea of what we expect and then feel disappointed when things don’t turn out as we wished.

Sometimes the gap between expectation and result is wide and other times it is less so. The degree of our potential dissatisfaction may hinge upon the size of the discrepancy.

But what if, what if sometimes we get something that’s better for us. We might recognize our luck immediately and celebrate it. Or the passage of time may reveal to us reasons why what we got was overall to our benefit.

Today’s message invites me to reframe a recent disappointment. When I believe I’ve been gifted with a positive result, I’ll be happier with what is. Gratitude is a powerful attractant for good.

Please reflect and share. How might you reframe a current expectation gap?
