Defying Expectations

A number of years ago, my husband and I were out for a walk when the subject of expectations came up. We were frustrated about two things. One — what seemed like unrealistic expectations that people were putting on us. And — two — the failure of co-workers to meet our expectations on a job they had committed to.

I remember throwing up my arms and saying, “Maybe if we don’t have expectations we won’t be disappointed.”

The reality is that if we don’t have expectations, we won’t go anywhere. We’ll be stuck just where we are and we won’t see others move forward either. What about our expectations? Are they healthy? Are they limiting? Are they inspiring?

What expectations do you have — of yourself — or of others? What expectations have others put on you? What expectations does God have of you? What expectations have you overcome in your life? What expectations do you want to overcome?
