Letting Go of Expectations

"When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are." -Donald Miller
Valentine's Day, like other holidays, is a day filled with expectations (most of which have been brought to you by Hallmark). We want the perfect expression of love from the perfect person so we can have the perfect Valentine's Day.

What a set up!

If you hold these expectations, what can you expect? Well, maybe you will have the perfect Valentine's Day, or maybe you will be sorely disappointed.

Today, instead of expectations, try holding love in your heart. 

Instead of romantic gestures with all kinds of strings attached, try giving without expecting anything in return.

Instead of wanting what you don't have, try being grateful for what you do have.

Let go of your expectations and simply enjoy what is.

"Love does not insist on its own way..." -St. Paul
