Learning how to let go of expectations – trickier than I thought!
“I cycled so much today – I should feel better.”
“I did my yoga and meditation this morning – it ought to make me feel more motivated.”
“I spent time with a friend last night – I should be feeling more connected.”
It took me a while before I even realised I was holding these invisible expectations in my thought patterns. And that they were bound to lead to some disappointment, sooner or later.
What to do?
Awareness and release.
I can see that I am holding certain expectations which may not serve me well.
May I let go of them, and take each moment as it comes.
