Living Expectantly

Life is less about what happens to you, and more centered upon how you choose to respond to it.

In order to seek happiness we must decide to do so.

When you are feeling less than joyful, it’s a conscious decision for you to take the necessary action to foster the growth of Joy inside you. That’s where it resides. It’s not a destination, it’s more than an attitude. Joy is  power, a strength and a reward that exists within each of us. It’s our individual responsibility to nurture it , co-create it and share it.

It is through how we choose to react to obstacles, circumstances and life in general as to how we do or do not experience joy. No one can truly take it away from you. Only you can prevent yourself from experiencing it.

Joy is extremely important to overcoming tests and trials as well as on our path of “Becoming” as it is through joy that we lead ourselves out of the darkness, to aid us in finding our answers, soulutions, authentic lives and to “Becoming” our destiny.

All really can happen quickly and when you are expecting something, especially change, growth opportunities or a new attitude, outlook or state of mind it really can occur sooner than you’ve ever imagined. You must remain open to the possibilities, accepting of the change and work your A.B.B.s – “Always Be Becoming”. 

Still not fast enough for you? How about NOW? 

Living expectantly it can all occur that swiftly; hastened by dedication and commitment, expedited by grace and  with acceptance. So we’ll Expectantly explore the state of “Now” on “Becoming Today”. 

Most simply it is living in a continual state of expectancy.

Expectancy

The act or state of looking forward to some occurrence; example ‘that feeling of optimistic expectancy that fills theatergoers as they wait for the curtain to rise”

The state of being expected occurs with an expectancy slightly greater than usual

looking forward

An example of expectation is a belief that you should behave in a proper or fitting manner.

In terms of “Becoming” it can also affect our momentum as in ‘A looking forward to; anticipation’.

It is also, ‘a reason for looking forward to something; prospect for the future, as of advancement or prosperity.That which is expected or looked for.’

Living expectantly is trusting in faith, obedience and patience that we can be all we’ve ever want to be “Becoming”

So living expectantly how quick, how soon can it be realized? How about now.

Now is used in the following ways:

as an adverb: We’d better leave now to get there on time.Now, what shall we do next?

as a conjunction, often with ‘that’: ‘Now that I’m married, I don’t go out in the evenings so much’.

Other examples include, at the present time,: “Until now, we’ve had very mild weather this winter’.

Living expectantly, being expectant of things that can happen quickly, soon, now. It is all part of our shared path. How exactly do they fit together? The timing for that is soon though maybe not as quick as you’d like, but that is where we’ll resume when the now is tomorrow,  on “Becoming Today”.
