“I expect it will not turn out, in the long run, like I had hoped.”
Often phrases used as a realization of a disappointing outcome.
Expectation – A strong belief that something will happen.
Why not expect good things.
Yes, it takes an act of your will at times, but the belief in the hope of expectation is the key to a bright future.
For a woman, it may be the fairytale they long for.
For a man, it may be the dream job.
For a golfer, a hole in one.
For a mom, healthy and well rounded children.
Recently I was reading to my grandson Beau.
I call it Beau time.
Beau is still less than a month old, but I have expectations for his life.
As I was holding him, I said, “Beau, you are going to be a good man, and you are going to do great things. Do not place the letter’s “im” in front of the word possible. Believe that it is possible Beau. Believe that you are part of making it possible. Expect good things.”
Which is where this thought originated.
Looking into the eyes of a little boy.
A boy named Beau.
A few years ago, I adopted a quote from the writings of Nehemiah.
“Remember me, O my God, for good.”
Not for bad, but for good.
Expect good things.
Visualize a good outcome for your life and the lives of your children.
When you speak, speak words of hope into the lives of those around you.
Encourage them to bigger and better.
For me personally?
I expect good things to come my way.
I expect them to happen.
Can I determine in specific detail how my expectations will come to pass?
Yet I believe it as though it has already happened.
When looking ahead, view your future in the following manner.
Not 10, but 20.
Not no, but yes.
As I told my grandson, “Beau, you are my expectation of great things for the future.”
A bright future indeed.
