Do you ever ride the roller coaster of “failed” expectations?
Such as when a holiday comes and you have some special hopes in mind, things that your spouse might do to celebrate an occasion or to show you that they care?
And then maybe that day comes and those hopes, that may have morphed into big expectations, may not be realized?
Seems as though this has happened to every one at least once!
I really believe this is most likely another case for beefing up self-care!
We need to show ourselves that we care, and not depend solely on someone else to give us that cared for and nurtured feeling.
We need to celebrate our lives and not give so much of our power to others. Particularly if we are expecting that someone will have the ability to read our minds to divine what it is we want!
If you need something, I hope you’ll find a way to provide that for yourself.
If you want something, I hope you’ll speak up and let those important people in your life know all about it!
And, I hope you will take a moment to feel your blessings today!
