"Expect good things."
I heard this phrase today and it hit me just how simple and freeing that would be. Why not leave the house expecting good things to happen to you? Why not enter into a situation assuming something good will come from it?
I don't know about anyone else but I'm soooo exhausted from all the mental, emotional, and physical energy it requires to be on the defensive all the time, awaiting the next calamity, dodging the next disaster. Ugh. Enough already. Fear doesn't have to be our default setting. We don't have to keep anticipating and reliving our wounded pasts. If we aren't in control of the greater universe, but only of our personal will and point of view- if what we focus on grows- why wouldn't we choose to trust, pay attention to, and EXPECT the good in every situation? Why wouldn't we give ourselves this gift?
