Daily Thought: Expectations

Until I could honestly look at myself and see that I was the problem in many situations and react appropriately inside and out; until I could discard my expectations and understand that my serenity was directly proportional to them, I could not experience serenity and sound sobriety.
– Daily Reflections, p. 71

Thought to Ponder . . .
Expectations are resentments ‘under construction.’

  1. Gentle good morning
    My experience is that as I bring my fretful mind to a place of quiet, that the stillness fills my heart, beyond thought, and I begin to resonate with what is.
    I only came here to get off the piss and now look what’s happened…
    Grateful for the Gift

  2. Top of the morning family,
    Acceptance is not submission;
    It is acknowledgment of the facts of a situation,
    Then deciding what you’re going to do about it.

    Top shelf shares…
    – As HarryS link suggests: Acceptance is not submission. It just showcase to self: I’m not in control.
    – Expectations can mature to resentments when secured in an escrow account.
    Today, I’m learning that when I receive a blessing from Divine Mercy; joy, gratitude, and peace enter my soul. When self expects something and I receive it; it was suppose to happen. I didn’t see, feel, hear, smell, and experience it. Self just says, “bout’ damn time!”
    It’s a good day to have a good day.
