Good morning purple fam
What a beautiful looking Hump Day
The moment we begin to STOP expecting and learn to start accepting life does become easier.
I have been guilty of this for so long♀️.. just setting myself up for disappointment after disappointment because "I" have placed an image in my mind of what something should look like or how someone should be behaving.
What a surprise when none of the above turns out the way I laid it out in my mind..right? ♀️
Each experience taught me that I cannot feel peace by placing expectations on anyone or situation. It's only a recipe for internal turmoil..
I have since taken baby steps to remove myself out of the mind set..it's not to say I don't fall into that trap once in awhile, but I have become more aware with Gods guidance of when I am doing it, so I then direct my thoughts away from "expecting" to "accepting" what will be will be, it really is that simple.
Reality is that we have no control over others and what to expect of them, we do however have control over ourselves and our perception on what something should or should not look like.
I must say not placing expectations gives me more than just peace of mind, it gives me a peaceful spirit... making a huge difference on how I proceed in life.
You can feel the same peace, when you let go of the expectations.
Have a blessed day #goodmorning#igpost#humpday#midweek#noexpectations#keepitreal#nothingiswhatweexpect#retrainyourmind#itiswhatitis#respectthelegacy#princerogersnelson#mrnelson#adore#breathtaking#love4oneanother#liveforlove
