A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Loosen Expectations

No matter how good I am at making plans or predicting outcomes

no matter how strong my belief is that something should be a certain way,

life will often produce results I inevitably did not expect or want. It’s all fantasy. It’s not real. When reality doesn’t meet my fantasy, I wish the world were different.

When I hold tight to expectations, I become easily frustrated, disappointed, angry and humiliated.

When I take myself and my expectations less seriously, I may more easily handle what life hands me and move out of God’s way as I am guided on my unique life journey.

I know I have a tendency to expect things to proceed exactly the way I have planned…as I often do with my dyeing experiment (this batch was done at the weekend retreat.)

I will do my best to release this often frustrating habit…a life without expectations means I accept reality as it is, and people as they are, without expectations, without trying to force.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

(still doesn’t do texting, MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon, DiggIt…but caved into Facebook!)
