EXPECT

April 5, 2014

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
~ Michael Jordan

Expect the best. Over time, we can overemphasize the negative. Don’t give it that much power. Look for the good and see what you find. Positive expectations will change your reality.

What positive characteristics of yourself and your loved one have you forgotten?

  1. Good question! You’re right, it is so easy to focus on the negative – how toxic that can be for a relationship. Thanks for sharing this x

  2. I am working on this! Well, more so to release my expectations sometimes. I like the question you pose and am willing to find some 🙂 Conlee

  3. I think it is a lifetime’s work!

  4. perhaps also you should not expect too much, people’s expectations can be too high and no-one can live up to that ideal.

    • Heyjude, I had a friend who suggested that also… lower your expectations and then you aren’t disappointed…not sure where I fall on that one. Thanks for your idea.

  5. So agree with this, and I am GUILTY!!! I have a wonderful husband but I do tend to dwell on the dishwasher being stacked incorrectly, etc.! Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m doing my A-Z on animal facts with poems, and info about my assistance dog, Lola! http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com

    • Why is it that those little things end up with such power? A constant challenge to keep our perspective, eh?
