Expectation vs. Reality
I will admit, I over exaggerate things… sometimes
I might even be slightly dramatic.
But on the positive side, I tend to imagine that things will be amazing, epic.
I have a wild imagination and like to picture what will happen before it does. This sometimes gets me in trouble…and by sometimes I mean ALWAYS. Because what I picture is NEVER what happens, and it is especially difficult when I picture something being fabulous and it is a super duper fail.
I’ve been thinking lately about my expectations vs. reality….here are some examples:
I stub my toe, it really hurts, I look down expecting to see
But I actually see
I hear a noise in the basement, I imagine:
But it actually is
I’m feeling lucky so I buy a scratch off, I imagine
I get my fitness on and workout, I think I now look like this
I really just look like this
What I thought getting a puppy would be like
What it really was like
Perhaps I need to reign in my imagination and learn to just let things happen….
