Memo 070: Get Your Independence!

I can bet exactly 13 cents that you were expecting red, white and blue? 

See that’s the thing about expectations, they make an “expect” out of “a” and “tions”. Wait…

So, what I’m saying is that we put a lot of expectations on each other. Parents to children, teachers to students, siblings to one another, spouses or partners to each other, and so on. At some point you have to live YOUR life according to YOU. I don’t mean live a selfish life but live one that is uniquely yours.

Free yourself from the expectations that other people have put on your life. Cut yourself free of the mold. Make your own path. Take the road less traveled. Do something that is against the norm. 

I did! I wore orange, black and white on Independence Day! (Gasp) What will the people think?! Throwing expectations to the wind…Be free to be YOU!
