I hate to admit it, but I think I still believe in magic. Why else would I think that the hanging of a new calendar to mark the beginning of a new year will magically change everything? But I do. Every year. I think it is as if we are given a blank slate to start over a new life chance, you know. Just shuck the old habits and foibles and be the me I always wanted to be. Hmph.
It all boils down to those pesky expectations. They always rise up like a stain in the rug you think you erased with Miracle Magic Rug Renewing Foaming Cleanser (made up). It comes back. And then you think maybe its time to rip up the rug and put down tile. Change things up. You know, defy expectations.
I guess I'm saying it is January 2nd. What the heck hasn't my life changed? LOL.
It is another one of those Life Lessons I have to learn over and over again. Expectations. They just aren't helpful most of the time. They set things up for disappointment, or worse, failure. Give them up. Yep, I do remember learning this lesson. And here I am, once again, learning it again. Two days into 2017. It's not too late. (I crack myself up).
Let me know if you have a lock on how to give up expectations...permanently. I expect to hear from you. What'd you expect?
