Let me tell you a little story about expectations:
A few years ago, I did a course on expectations and letting go (and read a little wonderfully written e-book. It is titled “The one skill” and written by Leo Babauta. I cannot recommend it enough. And since he offers it as a free e-book on his website, be sure to check it out, in case that topic piques your interest: https://zenhabits.net/lg/).
So while working on these topics, I wrote a little note as a reminder, to post it to a wall in my room. I put a lot of effort into forming the letters into a clean looking font. I wanted to write “expectations”, but only made it to “expect”. I hung it on the wall, good to see from every angle of the room. Great, I would now be reminded daily!
