'Tis the Season to Be Realistic

Reasonable makes sense,
Realistic is what’s likely to happen.

The Holidays are the season for many things, especially great expectations. If you’re like me, every time I have high expectations and they don’t pan out, the disappointment can at times feel devastating. On the other hand to have no expectations seems like going too much to the other extreme. So here is the formula I have found that works best:


Good Planning
High Hopes
Realistic Expectations
But Don’t count on anything

Happy Holidays to all!
