- Cry and get frustrated.
- Try again. Which means I would have to go to the store and buy more of everything.
- Call and order from our local bakery that makes homemade delicious cookies and is affordable.
I told Chuck I was a cookie failure, but I had too much on my plate already that adding the stress of trying to bake all over again – well it just wasn’t worth the stress. It doesn’t mean I’m any less of a baker (because I’m pretty good). It just means the Universe is making sure I’m learning what battles to choose. “Maybe you can ask a family member to make something?” my friend asked when I texted her my frustration. Mmmm, I didn’t need to add my high expectation to someone else. Not only is that unfair, but it very well could be just another high expectation that I later became disappointed on.
So often we wish things to be better, forgetting that we can make them better. And that better isn’t always the way we expect it to be. More stress never makes anybody better. What in your life are you holding a high expectation to that should be re-evaluated?
I believe in you,
Chuck and Kristy Robinett are empty nesters. Listen as they navigate everything from ghosts to a cranky dad. In the THIRD episode, Kristy talks about their recent holiday hauntings. And why is ghost stories at Christmas time a thing? LISTEN on Anchor, Google Podcast, Overcast, Breaker, Spotify, and iTunes – pretty much wherever podcasts are aired (even Alexa!). We continue the conversation over on our Facebook page here.
