letting go of expectations

It happens time and time again. Whether or not we’ve had experience with something, it seems common to set up expectations about how something’s going to go, how someone’s going to react, how much time something will take.

Despite being told that the impacts of each chemo session are cumulative and have longer impacts, I figured on this last cycle that it would be enough just to plan for a couple of extra days of dysfunction. Ipso facto, by now I should be bouncing back. You know, still easily fatigued, but noticing daily improvement.

“You should be feeling better by now.”

Not quite, but soon. Let’s just not pinpoint a date.

One thought on “letting go of expectations”

  1. Even though I am not going through any type of health crisis your words resonate with my human experience Lynn – “this should be ……or this should feel ….”. Or they should…
    My expectations or ideals cause me suffering over and over. Thank you for sharing your journey. I hope you have a day containing some magic. But mostly I hope you are healed.
