What do you expect from you?

Expectations. We all have them, our shoulds. I’ve been expecting a lot from myself lately. Some of those thoughts come from others and what they expect of me. I should go to bed earlier. I should lose those sneaky 3 pounds I picked up along some way. I should be caught up with emails and mail and every minutiae of every day. I should have all my ATCs completed. I should have had my braces off months ago. I should have hung all my pictures by now. I should have my craft room back in order.

I should make the time to ___(fill in the blank)___.

Today I made time to tangle. I expected to do that sooner. Diva’s Challenge #41 insisted that we use only two tangles, Opus and Jonqal. It’s an experiment if you have never used these before. I just started using them, delightful dark-light contrast and flowing fun.

There’s a part of me that expects better. There’s a part of me that expects me to love it no matter what.

    Every time I get a case of the “shoulds” I try to remember what John Lennon said: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” I love your tile. It’s beautiful.
