“When it snows, you have two choices, shovel or make snow angels” -Unknown

We spend a lot of time asking – as children we are taught “may I have….,” and we are taught to pray and ask for God to bring us the things we want. We grow up and we ask for a college to admit us; we ask for a job; we ask for a raise and we may even ask for someone to marry us and love us forever.

What if you were to change the dynamic from “asking” which puts you in the mental place of they are going to deny my request because I am not good enough to “expecting”? Not from a place of pride, because we actually knew that we deserved to be happy? 

If we choose to be open to possibilities, then we should expect that possibilities will show up. If we choose to change our attitude, then we should expect that people will treat us differently because we became a better person. If we choose to take action, then we can expect results.

So this expectation comes from a place of our “choosing”, which is a place of action. We choose the life we want (whether we know it or not) and we can choose to change our life a little bit at a time, and we can expect those actions to help us overcome our fears, be true to ourselves, and even to even make life “easy, playful and fun” as making snow angels (no more shoveling).
