I used to write in my diary: “New Year – New Expectations.”
How did that work out? Not always in my favor.
If you go somewhere without expectations and a calculated road-map of how it all will pan out, you will for certain meet the unexpected. It can turn out to be boring or it can possibly be mind-blowing. Either way, you are open for what life has to give you. Not what you already decided how it should turn out to be like.
Life can then take unexpected turns. Be ready. Go with it. Do not resist what life is giving you, even if you were not expecting it or prepared for it. Embrace it and make the best of it.
To move through life without expectations is not the same as not aiming for your goals or working hard to achieve something important. The importance is to have the intention of not expecting the outcome this or that way. You will be surprised of what is waiting around the corner if you stop expecting things or people to be a certain way. One of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received from a very close friend is a ring with an inscription. It says: “The journey is the reward.” It is my best reminder to take in each moment at a time, without deciding how I want the outcome to be. I am in it for the ride.
The New Year is not a new page, a new chapter – it is a whole new book, and the best is that it is unwritten.
Start writing your story in your heart. The story that only you know, that only you own.
Some great new stories can be written, some not so good, and some never-ending.
Let your own story guide you to an unexpected life.
I promise you, without expectations and embracing life as it comes, you will live life to the fullest in 2017!
With love in My heart to Your heart for an unexpected year 2017!
