Lower your expectations, increase your JOY!

photo of girl dancingLowering expectations is a tool that works. The angel in this photo knows, and we know, too. Perfectionism strangles joy. Who wants to feel that way? Lowering our expectations even 5% creates enough breathing room for us to dance. Lowering our expectations doesn't necessarily mean lowering our standards. There's a difference between excellence and perfection. What does that look like for you? For me, striving for excellence keeps me focused and inspired. Sprinkle in a little self-compassion and joyful progress is possible. We're human after all, curious souls experiencing life lessons together here in Earth School. We get to allow ourselves a learning curve, don't you think?

A small step to try…

Think for a moment of something that is stressing you right now.
  • Searching for the perfect recipe for the family potluck?
  • Trying to make a gift that isn't coming together like you hoped?
  • A dirty house?
  • Unfinished projects at year's end?
How might you lower your expectations 5% and open up some space to dance? Let the angel-dancer in YOU choose HAPPY over PERFECT.
