When Our Expectations Become A Priority..

Two quotes with regards to this blog thought.

“When you release expectations you are free to enjoy things for what they are instead of what you think they should be.”- MH

“You may not be a priority in my life, but you will always matter.”-CS

 

I believe how we say things to other people in our lives may not always be interpeted as we wished them to be. But, our actions always will. We can talk love, honour and respect, till we are blue in them face, then turn around and with one stab in the back action, literally kill every word we spoke.

For myself, this is what I call, speaking from both sides of one’s mouth..all the pretty words flow freely from one side and septic thoughts spew from the other.

For this past half decade of my life I have witnessed and been on the recieving end of both and today can laugh. I have learnt not to have expectations of others and for my life to be truly happy, it is me, myself and I who have become the priority of it. Yes, I do have one rule I live by…my time and effort must be matched in any relationship..family or friend. When it is not, I use my free will to walk away.

Do you have great expectations of others and make someone else a priority in your life?

P.S. As children my children were priority. Thats a given. Then they grew up.. Plot twist!!

 

Why Me?

Why Me?

Two little words that get asked alot and most of the time, the one asking doesn’t even know who they are asking that 2 word question to. Even if we don’t have an actual being we are asking, the point is we are putting that two word question out there to the universe, who is always listening.

When things go great in our lives, we don’t say, Why me?, it is always when things are going bad, as we feel it, in our lives, so the universe answers us with more of what we are asking for.
A few years back, I started asking, Why Not Me?, then I focused on the answers. Again believing what I put out to the universe, would come back to me…
Why Not Me?
.. because I wouldn’t wish my pain on anyone else.
.. because with every heart ache, I am becoming more loving.
.. because what pains me to hear, I grow more empathy
.. because I am worthy of peace, love and harmony!

Eventually I learnt to think positively, eventually, the universe was giving me more to smile about.
Eventually, I was rarely ever asking, why not me? at all.

I am at peace, I am love, I am worthy and I thank
the Universe, my Creator for harmony.. yes me! Why not me!?

..if that makes any sense to you at all? LOL.. it does in my mind, which I will admit, can be a scary place. 😉

Mid Morning Dreams (1)

“…and they stood in the pouring rain, embraced tightly in each others arms, like 2 best friends could. She wished her well with her new life as they scrunched each others jackets, neither, not wanting to be the first to let go. “I’m so sorry for what happened, it wasn’t my intent to insult you, it never was.”
“It’s okay, I understand, water under the bridge.”
They kissed eachothers cheek before looking into eachothers eyes. “Be well, be happy.”
“I will and you too be well and happy.”
That was a rainy spring morning and now she fought off the freezing winter winds. She walked with her head down and slightly turned away from old man winter, not wanting to make eye contact with even a relative of Mother Nature, afraid that if he really saw her depth through the windows of her soul, it would send a chill down his spine…..” By Snowy

When it comes to relationships, I believe most of our sadness and reason for falling apart is because we expect the other person to give as much as we do, into it. That is not always going to be the way. No 2 people will love each other at the same level every day, one of the 2 may love more one day and less the next. Understanding that, will keep the relationship balanced, not at 50/50 but at 60/40 or 30/70 and so on. Learn to accept each others personal best. And remember who you fell in love with in the beginning, with no expectations of you changing them.. change may come, only if and when a person wants it..don’t force it. Accept and carry on or reject and be alone.. we all have choices. Neither is bad, if it works for you.

Parenting: Are We Getting a Raw Deal?

12711307_10206480078338131_5829653117437408897_oSummer 1974. I’m 9 years old. By 7:30 am, I’m up and out of the house, or if it’s Saturday I’m up and doing exactly what my father, Big Jerry, has told me to do. Might be raking, mowing, digging holes, or washing cars.

Summer 2016. I’m tiptoeing out of the house, on my way to work, in an effort not to wake my children who will undoubtedly sleep until 11 am. They may complete a couple of the chores I’ve left in a list on the kitchen counter for them, or they may eat stale Cheez-its that were left in their rooms 3 days ago, in order to avoid the kitchen at all costs and “not see” the list.

If you haven’t noticed, we’re getting a raw deal where this parenting gig is concerned. When did adults start caring whether or not their kids were safe, happy, or popular?…
