There are expectations galore. We expect perfection of ourselves. Others expect us to excel and to be able to all things well. Are you laughing out loud at such absurdities?
Then there is the facet of expectations that has us looking forward and anticipating. There’s the whole journey of anticipating a discovery, an event, an exploration, a melding of ideas, or the development of solutions.
Ah yes, then there is the embarrassment, frustration, saving face when it comes to not meeting expectations. Then we have the reality there is no certainty in whatever. The fact is we can determine if an expectation is reasonable, necessary or even desired to pursue.
Truly expectations are not etched in stone. We have a choice. When we look at some of our expectations as well as others have for us, they really are outrageous.
We can grin, giggle, laugh out loud, enjoy lots of laughs, love ourselves with laughter, and embrace the love of laughter – LOL.
