Letting Go of Expectations; Doing the Peace Work

Snow in June is not what you expect, even in Sweden.

But that’s the thing about expectations. They get in the way.

No it’s not usual to have snow in June. (and we didn’t and Sweden may have had it in May). But when it happens, it’s just what it is. Railing against it doesn’t really change much, does it?

Expectations get in the way of Peace and Peacemaking.

I’m good at having high expectations. That has its pluses. I find people often live into your high expectations. But sadly, I’m also good at letting them and my irritation when things go differently than expected get in the way of my Peacemaking. I have to remember… All I am saying is give Peace a chance. I’m saying that to me!
