Should you have high expectations or lower ones to lead a happier life?
There are two very different ways to look at expectations - do they play an essential role for living the life of your dreams or are they destroying your happiness?
For one part, your expectations have a huge role in creating your reality right?
As in, what you look for you see. You see happiness and kindness in others, you'll find it...
People come people go.No matter what, that's always going to be the case, and life is perfect just like that! As you grow and develop as a person, you're bound to attract different people and relationships into your life. It's a sign of your development and evolution through life. It's your right as a sacred human being, and it's all in perfect working order...
My friends, as the owner of this website around the topic of developing and evolving as people, I feel completely compelled to write about this. Sign out of Facebook and start living in the real world. Granted, this might not be for everybody, some of you might not use it to the point where it's negatively effecting your life, also when I refer to Facebook I'm actually referring about any social network that one could find themselves addicted to... The point is here - addiction. Often you don't realise you have one.... Are you addicted to Facebook?
Let's face it, sometimes - no matter what our good intentions are, it's easy to let things slide and put things off. It happens to the best of us... These things build up, and then there is a whole bunch of tasks to do... Sometimes it's too easy to be wrapped up in having fun, or with work, or ahem... facebook, whatever. This is an issue I'm putting on the table for the moment because it's been happening to me... As I stand innocently amongst my full washing basket, my unwritten emails and my projects I brushed aside, I feel the full meaning of the word procrastination.
''Don't take life too seriously; you'll never get out of it alive!'' A great quote by Elbert Hubbard... This is what I want to share today. The simple message - don't take life too seriously. It's all too easy to get caught up in busy everyday circumstances... Little things leave you frustrated, for apparently no reason. Just yesterday I nearly got run over by a car that sped around the corner where I was crossing the street (something that keeps happening to me here in Rio de Janeiro) I felt pretty annoyed at first like I was being interrupted from my good mood - but then I decided to let go and just not take life too seriously.
Everything you do is a creation, and your life is a fine work of art. Throughout all your experiences in your life, your decisions, your thoughts, ideas and creations, you contribute to the Universe. You owe it to yourself and the world to be the best version of yourself that you can be, and that’s what Evolve and Express is about; personal growth and development through self exploration, travel, creativity, art, and spiritual consciousness… It’s about human evolution on a personal level. Albert Einstein put it best when he said;
We have to do the best we can. This is our sacred human responsibility
It’s the moment to dedicate your time to you. Self Improvement is everything in this world. The very best of our human race are those who have invested time into self-exploration and personal development and these are some of the greatest people who contribute to the evolution of human kind. While we are given this wonderful life from the Universe, it’s our responsibility to be the best we can be, right?
Dedicate yourself to continuous, personal improvement, for you are your most precious resource
That’s why I’ve created the Be You Life Coaching Courses. Especially for people who want to delve deeper into personal development.
The site is called Evolve and Express to promote the idea that we are forever evolving, growing and learning about ourselves, this is a wonderful aspect of being human, even more so when you find ways to express who you are in which ever medium clicks with you. It could be dance, cooking, fashion, music, travel, art, etc. Here’s one of my favourite ways to express myself about this subject; Art of Evolution.
In every step that you evolve through life, you brighten your path on the road to self discovery.
We have an abundance of avenues for our self improvement and personal development, are you someone who likes to ask yourself powerful questions and analyze where you’re going in life? Or someone who likes to creatively express yourself through artistic mediums? Do you like to travel and measure yourself through the backdrop of different cultures? Do you desire to work on a stronger deeper spiritual connection?
No matter which way works for you, your mission is to unleash your creative, personal power, live your life the way you dream of and be the best version of yourself you can possibly imagine. Evolve and Express wants to give you inspiration, motivation and share wisdom to continue you on your path of self improvement and personal-development. Exploring who you really are is one of the most powerful journeys you will ever do.
”Living on purpose requires us to find what we love fiercely, give it all we’ve got and then pass it on, as if it were a torch, to those who follow” Dawna Markova
I’ve never learned anything as solidly, as the importance of surrounding ourselves in positive, healthy environments. Evolve and Express is about creating a great environment to learn about yourself, sharing stories, advice, support and inspiration with like-minded people. Please feel free to share it. Your journey of self discovery and personal development continues here.
