In life, you might run into so many things that once looked so great in the mental image you drew in your mind yet slightly different in reality. I know it’s scary, but you’ll find your way around it.
We humans, we were created that way with an imagination that drives us mad sometimes…
We set standards to almost everything we choose, but what are standards anyway? I’ve personally thought of it many times and I’ve came to a realization it might change one day but at least for now it makes perfect sense in my head and from where I stand. This realization is basically that standards is the shelf that we tend to hang our expectations of almost everything we approach, so when our expectations fail us we resort to the standards shelf and basically claim that it did not meet our standards for whatever deficiency we found. Unfair I know!
Those what so-called “deficiencies” that made our expectations fail, they are only that to your own expectation. Not necessarily a real deficiency! Take a minute, take a deep breath and look at it from a different aspect it might find another access to you and truly prove that your expectations are vague and fantasies of the small safe world you’ve created in your brain.
Life isn’t basic neither are we. Unpleasant surprises are surrounding us, it’s life again… it’s exciting! Waking up every day not knowing what will happen, scary but the roller coaster of life… oh yeah, we dig it!
“I’ll have my share today”. I’ve taught myself to wake up to this thought everyday for the past 5 years, and I’ve made everyday since that day.
Doubt will have a share as well, as long as choices and decisions find away your way you’ll face doubt. I’d rather not describe doubt because it’ll always take us back to zero, yet I’d take advantage of doubt and turn it into faith, because yeah I’ll have my share one day…
Don’t try to figure out life nor play it out, I won’t tell you to go with the flow either. But the best action chosen would be, be elastic… basically! And trust me that you will have your share one day.
