Audio Blog: Why I don’t believe we should expect nothing + appreciate everything
‘Expect nothing + appreciate everything’…
This is the phrase that has literally been tugging at me over the last few weeks.
I recently shared via my newsletter (where I share lots of personal insights + wisdom) that I am on the receiving end of lots of beautiful wisdom from women on pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
Most of this advice is so supportive. Sometimes, it’s not supportive at all.
Some of that advice – ‘Expect Nothing’ – I completely understand. Great Expectations that are riddled with agendas and are buried under the attachment to the image of perfection can lead us into such a state of control and therefore control us.
However, there is something within the advice of ‘Expect Nothing’ that hasn’t been sitting with me right.
I am a woman of Inspired Action. Contemplation and Consciousness merge with the desire to be involved in life, to take action (yet surrender when required!) and to choose a positive, glass-half-full approach ALWAYS.
So, being told to ‘Expect Nothing’ feels a little futile. I do not want to get caught up in controlling outcomes and then being let down by the unachievable goals, BUT I do believe in being empowered and making conscious choices.
Today’s 10 Minute Audio Blog explores discuss how to Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything and Being Aware and Proactive.
Without further adieu I’ll let you hit PLAY and listen in where I dissect the difference between expectations and positive, conscious behavior.
