The world is placing so many expectations on you.

Your friends may be placing expectations on you.

You, yourself, are placing so many expectations on you.

When do you find the time to just relax, breathe, and just live in the moment of you?

It’s easier said than done, most times.

Some of you are first generation college students, first time entrepreneurs, the first one in your family to own anything or make a name for yourself.

With having all of that freedom, comes a certain responsibility.

Many will try to mold you into their own version of who you are, but you can’t allow their pressures become your pressures.

Sometimes your own family can be the worst. Maybe for you it’s not family, but it’s friends or even co workers.

They see you one way, but you’re really a whole different person than what you present to the world to see.


Whose expectations are you living up to ?

Who’s happiness are you serving?

I remember one time I had a job that was no longer serving me.

This was me staying for the longest because I didn’t want to let anyone down. I didn’t want someone else’s expectations of me, to be let down. I was serving them, and their perception of the person I was, but I wasn’t living up to my own expectations.

My expectations were to be more and even do more.

How many of us are living places, hanging with others, working at jobs that no longer serve us, or even meet our OWN expectations?


Friend, I’m here to tell you, don’t serve things any longer that don’t serve you. Get out of that career field, let go of those people, embrace life and live out your own expectations.

Don’t limit your mind to what others tell you about who you are.

Do you think I would be sitting here if i limited my expectations that others had about me, to how they saw me?

I wouldn’t be the blogger you see me today, If I listened to how others would say I was too timid and never talked up for myself.

I wouldn’t be the person that people go to for advice if I just lived in the expectation of others seeing me as someone that holds information.

Don’t live in YOUR expectation, live in YOUR EXPECTATION.

Your expectation on life, and live your life for you.
