A little about me …

Seriously?

First a little bit about me … I’m going to be 50 in about 5 minutes, I’ve been married for 20 years and have two incredibly great teenagers, (albeit incredibly moody). I am a Capricorn and I’d say 99% Capricorn. I do yoga everyday and my husband says “for someone who does (“practices” is the correct term FYI ; yoga everyday you’re awfully high strung”, my response is “can you imagine me if I didn’t do yoga everyday”? and his response is “I’d be scared!”

I’ve been told by a number of people that I need to lower my expectations of people because then I won’t constantly be disappointed. My husband says he tries to have zero expectations and then sometimes he’s pleasantly surprised. 🙂 Which is really great advice and may work for him but I’m having a hard time with it, and I don’t want to lower my expectations, I want people to rise to my expectations (someone said to me the other day “who died and made you God”)? So I’ve been “practicing” this mantra “lower your expectations, be more forgiving and compassionate & understanding” it has maybe worked a tiny bit. And then I came across this quote while in the throws of being disappointed by others “There is no good way or bad way. And the sooner we let go of expectations about how things are supposed to go, the happier we get to be.” Which I wrote down and put in my nightstand from a book I just read called “The Divorce Party” by Laura Dave. So I texted my friend that quote who also has high expectations of people and who is also constantly let down and I said “perhaps my mother is right, she told me I have really high expectations of myself and so I think everyone else should be the same and they’re not so the sooner I accept that the better”. And you know what my friend’s response was? “Lies, all lies! Of course there is a good way and a bad way, the GOOD way is OUR way”! For better or for worse I have to say I agree! “What is wrong with people?” was going to be the title of my blog because I constantly find those words coming out of my mouth … but this “blog” has morphed into something much better because it turned out I actually have a lot of positive good things to say and share about people, I shocked myself, so therefore I changed the title and the direction of my “blog/website” …  my initial Bitmoji I was going to use was
