Happy spring!  Depending on where you are in the country, you might still have snow on the ground, and rainy days upon you…but either way, spring is coming.  People often use spring as a metaphor for ‘change.’  We are often reminded that change happens whether we are ready or not.  However, as we await the change in weather, blossoming flowers and warm breezes, I would like to remind us of The Power of Expectation.

The Power of Expectation is the power we often give away without much intentional thought.  How many times in our life do we say “this event is going to be awful” or “this date is going to stink” or “I’ll probably never get that job”?  I find that once we start to set a low bar for our life events (relationships included) the bar then gets lowered and so do our expectations.  Once our expectations our lowered, we begin to accept a life that we may not find meaningful.

What are the things we often accidentally set a low bar for?

·      Relationships – Sometimes we allow people we love to treat us disrespectfully and then wonder why we are not fulfilled.  This can go on for days, weeks, or even years.  It’s never too late too raise the bar and teach people how we expect to be treated.

·      Jobs – Sometimes we stay in positions out of fear of being worthy of finding a position that will pay us to do work that we love.  Are we staying put out of fear or fulfillment?

·      Living Situations – Where we live and whom we live with can be dictated by our desire to be surrounded by beauty and a nurturing environment, rather than by fear of no other options.

·      Emotions – We can set a high bar for our emotions! What do you need to do to set a high bar for your emotions?  Work out? Eat a healthy breakfast? Schedule a lunch date with a friend? Seek outside support? Spend time outside?

Try it! Set a high bar!
Allow yourself to believe that you deserve to be with someone who loves you just as you are. Someone who “gets” that you are the only ‘you’ on the planet.Allow yourself to believe that you can get paid to do what you love.  Keep in mind here that “payment” is not only monetary.  There are other forms of payment in this world.  Just figure out what form you need and how much.Allow yourself to believe that you can raise your expectations of your life.  Believe in abundance and that this world can provide “enough” for you to thrive.

Happy Spring,
Rachel
