We have so many expectations… from things, from people, from the world in general and ourselves in particular that something or someone is always falling short of our expectations. I think half of our problems would be solved if we stopped having expectations from people. Taking my own example, I want to excel at my job, at being a good mother, at being a good homemaker, a blogger, a writer and also lose those excess kilos that are slowly pushing me from over weight to obese. Like everyone else, I too have 24 hours in a day. This means that there are multiple demands on my time and I am contantly juggling priorities. It gets tiring – this jugglery and if I stop, close my eyes and try to relax, my mind goes into an over drive of things that need to be done, things that are pending and even things that I have to prepare for. Not a good place to be this. I made a choice to blog actively I made a choice to write. am constantly weighed down by guilt of giving these activities time – most often by sacrificing sleep, sometimes by sacrificing time with my daughter. So why do I feel torn now?
Have you guys faced similar situations? How do you deal with it?
