Tonight’s blog is short due to Connection issues at home. Thank god for iPhones!
Expectations. We all have them.Whether it be that you will be having 3 Weetbix with two teaspoons and half a cup of milk or you will be skipping breakfast, it is still an expectation.
For me, expectations are the foundations of my life. When I get something that is unexpected, I do tend to get kerflummoxed for a bit, until I get my head around it.
Something that I do have high expectations of is my friends. Some expectations I have include:
These expectations I also have of myself in friendships.
I also have expectations of work, home, family, and personal things.
I expect to be treated with respect, no matter where I am. I expect myself to show respect, also.
I have an expectation of achieving my dreams of having my own family; I have an expectation of having a job that I truly enjoy; I have an expectation of being a wife.
But what do you do when someone or something falls short of your expectations? And falls short in a way that that is nothing more than gut wrenching. Do you simply give up? or do you stay, and fight, and soldier on?
A big expectation that fell incredibly short was my VCE scores. I scored a miserable 42.15 out of 99.9. It was like I was, quite literally, watching my dreams and hopes and aspirations being thrown out a window. A lot of my peers were heading off to Uni, and I was stuck in my po-dunk little town, destined to forever work a menial job and amount to nothing.
I still am a bit upset over that fact, but have moved on. I am, however, stuck at this stage in a menial job which I hate quite passionately, but I have an expectation to be happily employedvery soon.
Expectations are things that every person has, holds, lives by, aspires to. Expectations can be called goals. They can be hopes. The can be dreams.
They are things that are ingrained in you, make you, shape you and in short, are you.
Every body has expectations, even if it’s only to not get a phone call after 9PM at night.
I would love to hear about the expectations you have for your life and dreams.
Big Love xo
