I didn’t get what I expected! My reformer Pilates teacher would be gone and suggested that I try out a mat Pilates class while she was away. I did the more difficult mat class several years ago, but the last couple of years have been physically challenging and I wanted to be sure this class would suit me.
I checked it out carefully and was assured that it was what I was looking for—focused on the classical movements. I arrived on time, removed my shoes, set up my mat, and waited.
One of the other fitness teachers hurried into the room and announced that the regular teacher had a sick child and had asked her to substitute on very short notice. All my careful preparation was completely useless!
The class was NOT what I expected, needed or wanted! It was fast and rhythmic instead of slow and meditative. I was quite unhappy.
That’s the problem with expectations, sometimes they simply aren’t met. In fact, that happens way too often to suit me. The choice becomes to hold on to the disappointment or let it go and move on. Often, easier said than done.
I use the Logosynthesis process I teach in this book to let go and move on. Try it yourself. It works amazingly well.
This post is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 115 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®). You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
