We all have one life, with a beginning and an end. We can do what we can to manage our “Life Expectancy”. Take care of our health, be sure we eat correctly, get proper exercise. Make safe decisions in life and don’t put ourselves in the path of danger. We live in a time when people are living longer than ever.
But perhaps life expectancy should be more about what you “expect” out of life.
Why is it that we have so many expectations in our lives? Expectations of others, expectations of the people we love and the people we work with. When those people and things around us don’t meet our expectations, we can often let that change the complexion of our lives. We become angry, disappointed, disenchanted . Sad to say that we are sometimes our own worse enemy.
So when one life expectancy meets our lives expectations we need to be sure we understand. Time is precious, and our expectations need to be precious too. We can try to pin them on anyone and anything in the world around us, but in the end they are ours.
How long in our lives do we have to achieve those things we expect? God knows.
What do you accept and what are the things that will be meaningful to you?(
(Perhaps that is truly your life expectancy)
