In case you didn’t know it already I feel terribly compelled to remind you that you aren’t expected to be perfect or always have your act together. As a matter of fact, there are no expectations of you at all except those you put upon yourself.
Sure others can and do try, but really what is in their mind has no power over you unless you give it to them.
It is seriously egoistic to think you should ever behave a certain way because that’s how I want you to be. Who am I to think that I should have that authority over you?
The worst thing one can get engaged in is expectations of others. We have zero, zip, nada, niente, absolutely no right to dictate another persons desires or actions. As a matter of fact we only frustrate ourselves and the poor victim(s) when we try to do so.
If we could only control it all, ALL would be perfect. That’s the lie.
So here’s an idea: let’s together try our hardest to remember that every other person on Earth is just like you and just like me.
They are human. They are born. They eat, love, cry, pray, fear, hope and eventually they all breakdown and die physically – just like you and me.
(wow Sheri is depressing me…)
Wait. This is going to get better.
Here’s the deal beautiful you: we are ALL subject to the same ups and downs, the same beginnings and endings and the same mistakes or successes.
This is good news because it means that we are all equally capable of creating a legacy that somehow leaves a dent in this universe before our departure from this planet.
Perhaps not all people will see the dent. But the dent of a famous man will not be felt any less than that of an unknown man. The universe is affected by everything any of us humans do.
The wonderful truth of this then is that we all equally possess great potential.
Every human on this earth can, if they put their heart and mind to it, make a brilliant change that betters an already amazingly beautiful existence.
It’s not a matter of expectation, rather a matter of desire. Desire only of “self” to be the best that you can be. Desire is like fire. It sparks the soul in such a way to seek out the necessary tools and resources to fulfill purpose.
So on the days when it isn’t going exactly the way you want, when you find yourself flustered or frustrated ask your “self” why?
Is it because someone didn’t live up to your expectations? If so change your expectations, they are wrong anyway.
However, if it’s because YOU aren’t living your dream, stop and look for the solution.
There is one, I promise.
Do yourself a favor though. When you begin to make the quest to actually live your dreams and fulfill your desires, know that you will not always be successful on the first attempt. Going in knowing this is paramount to your happiness.
Be realistic AND be a dreamer.
In other words precious member of the noble human race, shoot for the stars in regards to the desires of your heart, but always keep one foot firmly on the ground.💫
That’s how you’ll realize your full potential.
(finally she’s making some sense)
Oh, and remember one other little thing … because you exist the world is already a better place.
Simply … because … you … exist.
Imagine how much it would change reality if each and everyone of us humans were truly living at maximum contribution capacity as well as existing.
That’s my dream for myself.
I want to be awake, aware and an active member of my civilization. I want to really BE the difference I’d like to see in this world.
And then … I want to BE CONTAGIOUS.
Now go out there and practice some epic stuff!
