I say this with the qualification of `but not from others' for a reason and I will get there eventually, if I do not forget to do so or lose that stream of thought.
I have said it before and I will say it again. First thing in the morning is usually the most vunerable part of the day but if you can manage to get out of your bed and re-align your thoughts,you should be good to go. If you can do that and project a good day, you can ultimately manifest a good day. Manifestation does not come from negativity. Negativite thoughts prevent manifestation of what is good and positive and you need some positivity as your foundation for such manifestation.
If you can wake up and greet the day with great expectations in a positive frame of mind, those expectations will unfold. Even if they do not unfold, you are still likely to have a good day because you have something to look forward to.
Great expectations mean great but they do not mean ridiculous expectations or the fulfillment of fantasies. Great expectations mean expecting good things to happen through the day rather than bad things. Great expectations means expecting to help someone else other than yourself and for good things to happen to other people and around you. Great expectations requires some element of self and some elements of selflessness. This is about having great expectations for yourself and for others.
To have great expectations from others takes you more into the realm of selfishness and also sets you up for disappointment. It does not really matter who the other is, whether they are your spouse, your lover, your friend or child. There is the danger of great disappointment when you have great expectations from others. There can be disappointment when you have any expectations, even the simple expectation of a phone call from a loved one or a message or selfie from a lover during the course of the day. There is some danger to putting anyone on the pedestal of expectations for they can fall and they can fall on top of you.
There is only one great expectation that is worth having from other and that is their happiness. Have great expectations today. Have great expectations for a wonderful day.Have expectations of happiness for yourself, for others and from others.
Have a great Monday morning and the rest of the week.
