do you know what you are creating now? is what you are creating what you are intending to create?

are you aware of what you are intending and what you are expecting?

are you aware of your thoughts?

do you believe that your thoughts create the life that you live?

do you believe that the thoughts in your mind manifest the life that you experience?

what are you creating?

do you trust that what you want will be?

do you worry and fret about what you don’t want?

do you imagine what it will be like when you have what you want?

what are you connected to?

what are your thoughts right now?

it is your responsibility to make sure the other person in your relationship knows your expectations.

so many hurts and frustrations are because our expectations are not met.

“Frustration is a function of our expectations, and our expectations are often a reflection of the social mirror rather than our own values and priorities.”
~ Stephen Covey

do you know what your expectations are? do you share your expectations?

tell your expectations to the other in your relationship. it is loving yourself and loving the other person (or part of the relationship) to know and share your expectations.

sharing your expectations is vulnerable, it is showing and building trust, it is letting the other person know how much the relationship means to you. sharing expectations shows that you value the relationship and its growth.

what expectations do you have? what expectations do you need to share?

live your truth!

expectation

what do you want?

what do you want in each area of your life?

what are you expecting from each area of your life?

do you know? do you have a clear vision of what you want?

are what you want and what you are expecting the same or different?

if what you want and what you are expecting are different, what do you need to change?

  • what do you need to become aware of?
  • where do you need to grow?
  • what do you want?
  • where are you now?
  • is there a step you need to take between?
  • does anybody need to know what you want or what you expect?

tell me, what do you want? what do you expect?

live your truth!

how old are you?

did i just make you cringe? what feelings do you have when you are asked how old you are? many people wonder why someone wants to know, thoughts of what are they going to tell me to be aware of or watch out for. many of us start thinking about what we are supposed to expect at a coming age, what dire changes are up ahead?

do you have expectations for different ages? did you, do you, look forward to certain things happening at each age? 

does any of what you expect seem like fun to you? it seems to me that aging has a negative feeling connected to it, people don’t want to get older or admit how old they are because there are more negative associations with aging than positive.

does your age in years define any part of your life? do you let age determine what you can and can’t do? or what you decide to do or not do? why?

i don’t believe any of it. why should age influence what you want? age doesn’t define you. why not go for what you want no matter what your age. experiences are more to living than age, so let your age beliefs go and focus on experiences.

as i “age” my experiences are expanding and i’m becoming more wise and free from judgement. i’m learning more about who i am, what i like, what i want to enjoy and bring into my life. i look forward to many activities and experiences.

and i’ll let you in on a little secret, age doesn’t have anything to do with what we can and can’t do! yes, as we age, we definitely change, but i believe more of our age beliefs are in our head and not in our body and mind.

if you want to do something, and you are in a body and mind that can do it, do it! go out and enjoy it! be the “old” man swimming in a speedo, or the “old” woman running a 10K in a sports bra.

write the book that’s been on your mind, try the new activity you see so many “young” people enjoying, start something you always dreamed of doing.

you are wiser and your past experiences bring more to the new experiences that you enjoy. live life and keep growing and expanding, not letting age hold you back keeps you young, and is expanding your life for each experience.

now’s your time! if you feel it, do! you are never to old to keep enjoying many different experiences, both old and new to you. what i want for you, is for you to add some new experiences into your life!

expand and grow, always, until the end of this life experience!

live your truth!

always questions

am i being who i want to be? what do i want? what is most important to me?

i haven’t been experiencing and sharing and being and doing in all that’s important to me like i want to.

i became so focused on living life that i forgot to live life. i forgot to enjoy life and to share life.

i created this bubble around me to only let in so much. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully experience. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully be who i want to be. i wasn’t allowing myself to fully do what i want to do. and that was limiting my experiences.

part of this bubble was created because of expectations of myself to be not perfect… but yet perfect in every way, in all areas of life. i lost touch with the growth and expansion that i expect from life and that i truly enjoy from life. i got caught up in, ‘this is what i want, so i want it now’. my wanting to be all these different things, i got lost in the being and the doing and i wasn’t experiencing life.

time to pop the bubble and begin being and doing, with all the experiences of the bumps, twists and turns, failing and trying again, and experience life. experiencing all of life fully and not just a little bubble of life of limitation.

what bubble have you placed around yourself? is it time for you to pop your bubble?

live your truth!

expectations

what are you expecting?

what you expect is what you allow.

are you expecting what you want? or are you expecting an old result from past experiences or unfulfilled wants? what are some of your natural thinking expectations you have from learned thinking habits?

  • I’m undeserving
  • it takes hard work
  • it takes too much time
  • it takes too much money
  • it’s only for other people, not for me
  • it comes with getting older

these are your paradigms, thoughts and actions that you don’t think about and just do or think, because they are part of your habitual thinking.

I am financially comfortable; my family and I have what we need, we enjoy activities, we enjoy vacations every year, I have some debts I would like to have been able to pay in total rather than monthly, we have just enough money or the right amount of money comes to us right when we need it, to get the things we judge to be most important and what we need the most.

but, I want to be financially free. I want my family and I to enjoy what we want, when we want it, I don’t want to have to plan to save because I don’t have the money for matching dressers in a bedroom, a new computer with more speed, a vacation to some place new, or attending seminars of my favorite mentors.

these are all things that we do now, but they require planning and sacrificing in other areas for us to do the thing we choose.

why?

it’s because I’m not allowing. I have old thought habits that are guiding my expectations, not the thoughts of expecting enjoying my new desires.

these old thought habits are coming from my experiences growing up and thought habits passed to me from the people I was surrounded by growing up.

awareness to old thought habits is going to allow for the change and replacing the old thought habits with the new expectation thoughts of what you really want to experience.

to get your desired expectation, you need to change or replace your paradigm with a new one. affirmations are good to use for giving your mind your desired expectation to think about. visualizing your desired expectation and connecting to it emotionally is good to get your mind thinking about your desired expectation.

are your thoughts for expecting what you desire?

live your truth!

belief

what do you believe in?

what do you expect from life?

do you expect to live your dreams and desires? do you expect to do what you want to do? do you expect to experience what you want to experience?

our expectations are what we believe we deserve, what we believe we are capable of.

“Your belief carries more power than your reality.”

The Biology of Belief by Bruce H. Lipton, PhD

the majority of us are capable of so much more than we expect.

what do you expect in each area of your life?

  • intellectual and personal growth
  • social relationships
  • financial
  • business/career
  • family
  • God/spiritual
  • health and wellbeing
  • giving back

you deserve all that you want to experience. what do you believe that is?

live your truth!

challenges

I am grateful for challenges in my life. I know that challenges are growth, that when I have challenges in my life I am becoming more, becoming better and/or getting ready for quantum growth and transformation.

When I’m in the middle of a challenge I’m not always able to be aware of the growth, or aware that I am getting better from the experience.

I can be overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, worried about a challenge in my life and when I am feeling any negative emotions I’m not as easily able to create what it is that I want.

I find that when I’m feeling the negative emotions I’m usually expecting a result that I don’t want, I’m thinking of a negative outcome rather than the positive outcome that I truly want. Sometimes it’s because I’m getting caught up in what the challenge is and not allowing myself to connect to the whole of life. Sometimes it’s because of an old paradigm that I still have. Sometimes it’s because I’ve gotten comfortable in an area of my life and haven’t thought about what it is that I actually want. Sometimes it’s because I’m in an area of my life that is part of my journey that I didn’t know I would experience and so I haven’t thought about what it is that I want.

My thoughts then are expecting negative, expecting what I don’t want. I am so happy and grateful when I am able to realize that I’m expecting something that I don’t want, because then I can change my thoughts and start expecting something that I do want.

It’s not always an easy shift depending on what’s causing the negative expectation, but being aware and being able to start changing my thoughts to what I do want to expect is how I like to live.

What are you expecting? Are you expecting negative or positive? Are you expecting what you truly want? If you aren’t, change your thoughts to expect what you do want!

Live Your Truth!
