Standards and expectations

Raise your standards.
Lower your expectations.

Your standards reflect what you value, who and what you see as important in your life,
what behaviors you are willing to accept, and how you hold yourself accountable.

Expectations are the gateway to disappointment and resentment.

Standards are a way to know yourself, and to be aware of how you want to be spending your time,
energy and money.

Expectations often set us up for disappointment in ourselves and others.
Causing us to be unrealistic about our own behaviors and judgmental towards 
the people in our homes and lives.

High standards keep you moving toward the life you say you want.
Lower expectations can make the journey less stressful.
