I was originally going to title this “Expect the Unexpected” but couldn’t remember if I named the Big Brother episode that or not! And I didn’t! I called it “Big Brothering” for some reason. There I go! Smashing my own expectations once again! But isn’t that what today’s episode is all about? Expectations?
They’re the death of us but we just can’t let them go. I’ve been haunted lately by this idea that I won’t evolve. That I’ll let old habits hold me back and stay in my comfort zone instead of taking the necessary risks to get myself closer to my goals.
A lot of this “cemented thinking” is from expectations. When you have a mental waypoint to where you think you should be going, you get down on yourself when you’re nowhere close or give up when you think you’re going the wrong way. But life doesn’t have waypoints.
It’s a blank map and you can walk anywhere you want.
