Expectations

The world is full of them! You go out with a guy for x amount of years, people expect you to get married. You are married for x amount of years, people expect you to have kids. A promotion comes up at work; you are expected to go for it. Why are certain jobs expected of you as a more respectable career than others, if your chosen career makes you happy, how can you have possibly chosen the wrong one. These expectations come with a cost, with so much expectation placed on you, you start to doubt yourself, you suddenly are not sure of what it is you even want for yourself and begin to ask yourself; “Is this what I really want for me, or is this purely what society expects of me?” I am not saying this is me, but if I told the world I never wanted to have kids, but wanted my life to remain exactly as it is so I can travel and go out all the time – would the world shun me, and I think that I am strange. If you are anything like me you already place high enough expectations on yourself, why do we need added pressure in our lives, and why is it that people always have such a good idea about how to live your life. Why do people have this rule book about how to live your life?

About Lou Schwarz

I am a traveller at heart.I dream about travel- of exploring the world and meeting new people. When I am not dreaming or travelling; I work in communications and media and I also teach body balance group fitness classes. I live my life trying to motivate and inspire people through fitness, doing one thing a week that scares me, and unleashing my creativity as frequently as I can. When I am not getting my zen on through teaching I am constantly attract ridiculous things and people into my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope you enjoy my two blogs -or at least one of them :)
