When Expectations Aren't Reality
Sometimes things aren't what we expect them to be. That doesn't mean that it's the end of the world, necessarily. But, things just don't quite pan out to what you thought they were going to be.
I guess that's where I am today. Expectations (and maybe unrealistic ones) clashing with reality, and it's all leaving me feeling a little... off. I know that none of it is worth getting unbearably upset over, and so I can't justify wallowing in the upset. And yet, I can't help a little bit of disappointment from settling in my heart, either.
And maybe that's okay for today. Maybe it's okay that, for a little while, I allow myself the disappointment. And maybe it's okay that, for a little while, I allow myself to not chase after the silver lining immediately.
It's okay that the expectations don't always meet reality. And it's okay to be sad about that.
