Expectations are thieves. Some may call them goals or promises. You give a child an expectation and watch them perform to their fullest potential. In the end, not being proud of themselves for the accomplishment, but for the expectation.

But what if I fall short? What if I am cheated? What if I did well, just not well enough? Do I still get rewarded or am I punished for not meeting the expectation?

Expectations are thieves because you are so concerned with creating this picture you have set in your mind that you can’t dwell or appreciate the blessings in front of you. Brainstorming leads to a foundation that creates designs. Expectations are demanded from us stealing celebrations, memories and time. We can never get back what’s already done. Expectations are thieves. Don’t depreciate your life because of them.
