Release Expectations

Many are in the momentum of their New Year’s Resolutions, working towards goals, embarking on new routines and lifestyle changes. By next week, over half of those who started 2022 with great intentions will let those goals go – for various reasons. In a world where we have quick fixes, instant gratification, instant access to information, products and services, we tend to lose interest in our goals pretty quickly especially when they require work.  No lasting change happens in an instant.  True change is generative, gradual and takes time to integrate into our lives. Resolutions, like expectations, need space to root, need light to grow, need energy to bloom and time to reach harvest to reap the rewards. For our resolutions to work we must continue to take 100% responsibility for ourselves and how we are showing up in the world, we must put the time and effort in and yet, at the same time, we need to let go. It is a delicate balance of pushing ourselves and allowing life to happen for us. If we get caught up in the control of our growth, we will stunt ourselves. Trust is an important element of our success. 

This week, we are encouraged to trade our expectations for appreciation. Let us remain dedicated to our goals but let us also be appreciative of the journey enjoying ourselves along the way.  If it is all work and no play or all work and no celebration, we will end up being just another statistic of failed resolutions. And let’s be honest, it feels too damn good working towards our heart’s desires to give up now. Stay strong. Stay dedicated. Stay grateful. We’ve got this!
