This week’s affirmation was “I get what I believe and expect,” which allowed us to pay attention to our limiting thoughts, beliefs and expectations that show up in our reality—whether they’re conscious or subconscious.
For myself, I expected:
This week to be good, and it was. I finished almost everything on my agenda. Completed all of my schoolwork. Work was productive and even got a promotion! And, I got to see a really good friend of mine.
To productively respond to any challenges, I faced. One of those included me respectfully expressing to someone that I’m not ready to have a close relationship with them, because I’m still healing from our past experience. I highlight this situation, because I spoke up for myself and that’s something I had an issue of doing with the same person in the past.
Not to expect the worst of a situation. Don’t we all do this from time-to-time? Expecting the worst to happen instead of being open to the endless possibilities of things, especially the positives. Well, I had an experience like that when I got promoted. Before it was presented to me, my manager wanted to speak with me in private and my immediate thought was, “Dang, am I getting fired or having some sort of disciplinary action taken toward me?” Luckily, that wasn’t the case, but what if that expectation came into fruition? I can tell you that I definitely wouldn’t have been a happy camper. So, I learned not to expect the worst of something or from someone and not to live in the future of “what if,” but to stay focus on what is.
Like I said in my last post, it’s important to recognize our past thoughts, perceptions, understandings and beliefs and how they show up in our lives today. Once we become aware of that, we have the power to change our reality.
What did you expect this week? And, did it show up?
