Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Earlier this week there was an electrical storm in the area where I live and as a result, I was among many who lost power. The power outage lasted several days and as a consequence, all the food in my freezer and refrigerator spoiled and had to be thrown out in the garbage.
With that spoilage and having to throw out approximated $100 in chicken, beef, hamburger and other items in my freezer and the perishables in my refrigerator, I had certain expectations. When these expectations were not met I found myself becoming angry. As I examined my expectations, I realized that the expectations were mine and that I needed to own my expectations and let go other them.
I have heard it said that expectations are premeditated resentments and that resentments are like drinking poison while hoping the other person dies.
With my awareness, I realized that I needed to let go of my unfulfilled expectations. By letting go of my unfulfilled expectations, I found that my anger faded. By letting go of my unfulfilled expectations, I found that resentments did not take hold. By letting go of my unfulfilled expectations, I found that no one was harmed. By letting go of my unfulfilled expectations, I found the calm in the storm.
