Expectations, February 6, 2015 Daily Reflection


Having expectations is not a bad thing. Some studies have even proven that they are good because they build up good feelings about an upcoming event. However, we need to always stay open to change and be flexible so that our lives are not determined by what did NOT happen and instead enjoy what is happening.

I am constantly telling my students, “If I teach you only one thing let it be this: There is only one thing that we can control in this life and that is your reaction to life. Life is going to constantly change and you will not be able to stop it but you can control how you react to each situation.”

Enjoy the expectations, be flexible and open to change and above all know that the only thing you can truly expect is change and embrace it in life with a positive reaction.
