Living In Gratitude: Keep gratitude higher than expectations

The days that I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, those are really good days. ~Ray Wylie Hubbard


Expectations…we all have them, of ourselves and of others. Consider how often those expectations are set so high that they aren’t met. By setting our expectations at such a level, we often also set ourselves up for failure or disappointment.

Instead, try setting your sights high for appreciating all you have, big, small and in between. Being thankful allows us to open our hearts to all that happens in life, not just what we ‘expect’. Remember the old saying, “The best things in life are unexpected!”
