Lower Your Expectations

It’s a new week, so go into it with a new attitude. Lower your expectations of others. With high expectations, you are setting yourself up for lots of disappointment and anger. So lower your stress levels by lowering your expectations of them and live in peace.

Change your thoughts Change your life – Consistency

Hey there, I hope that you are doing well and embracing your magnificence. You’ll often see me write about my learning on the journey of life and even about tackling my weight issues.
