Mindful Moment

Sometimes with are societal norms we get caught up in expectations. These expectations we put on ourselves can have positive and negative impacts on us. If we set small, reasonable expectations that we know can fluctuate they will remain positive. If we set giant expectations that are not attainable and expect that we can never swerve off the path, then this could be detrimental to our well-being. What are your expectations of yourself? Are they reasonable and do you understand that not attaining a certain goal is not failure, but a chance to regroup and find a different way? Just because one's path may be different than another, it does not mean they are lost.
