Do you have any expectations?

It can be about anything, yourself, your family , friends . And if so why? 

Personally,  I dont necessarily have any expectations apart from myself .

    I have many expectations, partly because it is a habit, but also because it helps inspire me to work harder towards my goals.

    I expected to have my first hydrotherapy session today that didnt happen. I was confused and disappointed because I had wait so long for it and it is a major starter for me to be able to be back into the work force but on the other hands okay because I only have to wait four days for my next session and ive already been waiting 1.5yrs for this so whats an extra four days then. Most of the time I dont really have an major expectations. Though on the hand I feel when I want to im capable of moving mounts and so far life has backed this feeling for me for now though maybe one day life will show me otherwise. I guess its because I decide a goal and im flexible with it and I just keep going no matter what till it happens. Im not afraid of failure infact I see failure a good thing. You learn more from failure then anything else so You just learn from it correct yourself and keep going and same and same till you get it. Never one successful ever became sucessful straight away without failure. You need failure to succeed. Oh just noticed you said family. I expect I will never see or talk to my mother, her brother and her mum ever again. I expect I will have brief contact over the years with the rest of my family except I expect I will maintain good contact with my cousin on my fathers side and my aunt on my mothers side. My aunt is the mother of my cousin on that side that I was closest too but she died. Prior to that a had a decent bond with her mother she also the only one on that side that has the best idea of what my mother is actually like so we are kind of tied by our experiences mother. We also having problems with her brother and mother. They are just bad toxic people but my aunt despite being very strong has little boundaries so this upsets her and she wants contact with them unlike me I dont. I cant tell her what to do or how to fix her problem with them so all can do is be there. Its been a rough 3yrs for her and she needs a least someone to stick by her. Myself. I was labeled disabled the professionals told me that was the best I could hope for. I didnt accept. It wasnt so much an expectation it was I wasnt gotting to accept it and I was going to do whatever I could to recover. Drs have been wrong and well ive seen Lorenzos oil based on a true story ill I would have attempted to discover a cure if I had to. I non stopped researched for four or maybe more years my memories bad. I actually found the correct pathway to treatment for recovery its very long but I have improved I did prove the doctors wrong and im on the right track. To I expect a full recovery or a normal life once I recover no im still.unsure of those things but id rather die trying then to just give up.

    I don't have unrealistic expectations. Family helps me a lot. But, the are not ought to do that. Friends have they own reasons for their actions. Of course, if they become harmful to me I stop our relations. But, I'm not judging them. It's their choice whether to be an asshole in relation to me or not. Maybe I deserve it.

    The only realization I have is to be good.

    I'm retired and hope to go to Heaven.

    The true meaning of human life is.... Self Realization. Love /hate, Good/evil, happiness/sorrow, positive/ negative, virtue/sin, soul/ body, heaven /hell.. are the creations of God.... So, by pure faith in God we can understand our eternal nature... which relates to our soul as our soul is the Part and Parcel of.... Supreme Soul...."God" ... Actually, we are spiritual souls but we are in human body. We are from the spiritual world. God has sent us on the earth...only for self realization.. as our souls are not as pure as, they have to be... So, God has given us human life where our body feels happiness as well as suffers pain. Therefore, we souls are here... to achieve... the level of purity and to become pure soul.... we should make an effort to understand the deeper meaning of unconditional love for all living beings.... in every situation... 

    Moreover, the eternal nature of our soul is to Love God...

    My expectations are tied in with the Bible's promise of a new world of peace and security. 

    (Psalm 37:10, 11) "Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. "

    Events that are happening now indicate the above promise will soon see fulfillment. For example Luke 21:11 - "There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs."

    Luke 21:28 - "But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near.”

    Why not find out more.

    The only way we can change the world for the better is by having positive expectations of the world...that it will change and that everyone can be happy... The pandemic has given us the opportunity to stop doing the things that were wrong in the world. The world, like nature, needs to become integrated and connected. It must stop being US and THEM. The world must become WE. We all want a life where needs are met...........Strangely enough it starts with you, each of us individually. We need to hold ourselves up to a higher standard when it comes to how we treat each other. Positive connections locally and globally, will end the mess we've gotten ourselves into.
