Live Learn Grow…

These are words I’ve carried with me often through my life. Things will not always go as planned in life, this is almost a guarantee. Oh how i have made so many mistakes in life and yet I am perfectly happy now. Live and learn. Of course i look back some times and realize, “What the heck was I thinking?” This is so normal, because you have learned from getting burned (so to speak). One awesome thing i have learned that has contributed to my happiness is expectations of people and standards. If you have expectations (and you know you will set them higher than a kite) most likely you will be let down. Its not really for us to expect things to be a certain way. Life is unpredictable and people are too. Don’t set yourself up for failure. Instead, have standards. Standards are set by you, what you will allow and can you really blame anyone if you don’t set the standards of how you want things to be? You and only you can make yourself happy. Think about how you want things to be and set yourself some standards. Quit having all these expectations and live a little. We tend to grow by learning what works for us and what doesn’t. Also things that may have worked for us in the past wont be so appealing due to our growth and maturity and that’s us learning. Make your life how you want it to be and you will be happier. Love yourself a little more… Cz
