Expectation and its limitations

"Little by little, one travels far."
- J.R.R. Tolkien

A recent conversation inspired me to write about expectation.

How many times have found yourself in a position of disappointment or frustration because you wanted something or a situation to occur in a certain way?

Practicing conversations, setting unattainable schedules, fantasised behaviour – subconsciously trying to control outcomes to make you and your life go a certain way and have others perceive you in a way you comfortable with.

You then have a conversation and the person does not behave the way and say what you imagined leaving you confused or a broken down vehicle delays you for 20mins, knocking your day off course and leaving you scrabbling to get back on track.

We all do this…

What can you do to stay adaptable to situations that may throw a curve ball into your day and stay strong and truthful in communications that may be difficult?

Meditation can help. A rested system allows clarity, adaptation, the ability to be in the present moment.

Little by little this happens by sitting comfortably 20 minutes, twice a day and practicing Vedic Meditation.

Letting go of expectation is rewarding and here is a technique to help you take that first little step.
