Do you have great expectations? Or have you heard that expectations are premeditated resentments? Do you have high hopes? Or are you afraid to get your hopes up too high?
Too many times I've listened to someone start sharing her vision of a dream with me and say, "I don't want to get my hopes up." Or that same person says, "I don't want to jinx it by talking about it." Then I heard, "expectations are just premeditated resentments."
Would it be nice to be free of all those fearful cliches?
It's not the hopes or talking about our dreams that jinx us; it is the lack of self-awareness and trusting our conscious brain (the one that says 300-1000 words to us a minute) that leads to our disappointment. It is whatever you believe in your heart that calls your life to you.
Do you have great expectations in your heart? Are high hopes radiating from your highest mind?
