I changed my expectations of myself in preparation for traveling. I love to read a chapter in my Bible and Book of Mormon each morning and night, but decided that during our travels, I would be happy with once a day reading. I also love that I've been able to complete 30 minute meditations for the most part lately. I reduced my expectations to completing open, 7 minute kirtan kriya, and close for the first half of April. I'm glad I did. Because I was reasonable with my plans and goals, I was able to experience success with maintaining my meditations this past week, for the most part. There really are seasons for all things!
During the rest of our travels, I'm going to continue the decreased expectation for myself and I hope I will continue to be successful! :)
Are you meditating? Have you experienced the need to reduce expectations in this way with anything in your life?
