There is a difference between a Possibility, and an Expectation. And it’s a good one.
An expectation holds a high regard as to what will likely happen. An expectation holds dear that something will happen. An expectation demands that something should happen.
An expectation is a possible future coupled with an attachment.
It should go this way… or else.
A possibility, on the other hand, acknowledges that is a creation.
A possibility calls towards the future and puts a vision out there, without clinging. A possibility aims broader, foregoing a specific outcome and specific paths to get there. Possibilities live in the world of intents, recognizing the broader avenues of fulfillment.
And here’s the fun part:
If you have an expectation, and it goes unmet, then you’re left with disappointment.
If you have a possibility, and it goes unmet, then what you’re left with is… a possibility.
No upset. No frustration. Only a place of clarity and power and creation from which to spring forward into what’s next and towards the fulfillment of your possibilities, and the joy therein.
