That’s my mantra for the last month. I am really trying hard to try to be grateful for what I have.
I find myself not grateful for the good things. I don’t appreciate the good things I have, and that’s silly.
I tend to live completely the past or the future, always looking either behind to what did happen and I wish had happened, or forward to what I want to happen in the future.
The problem with all this ? EXPECTATIONS.
- I have totally unrealistic expectations.
- I expect people t act the way I want them to.
- I expect people to understand what I want
- I expect people to do things they can’t ( or won’t) do.
- I expect too much.
All told, the problem is really my problem. I need to manage my own expectations and especially my thoughts. I need to not put what I would do, upon other people.
Easier said than done though. I have lived in the past and in the future for so long, that I have to change a very set mindset.
None -the-less, we must persevere, we must adapt and we must continue, and I intend to do all of those things.
