How often do you set expectations for yourself or others? The reality is, we do it all the time and we might not even know it. This morning, the @headspace app’s mindful #QOTD said this: “It’s ironic that, if we could just stop wanting something to make us happy, we might be happier.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though we may have the best of intentions when setting our expectations, it still doesn’t guarantee our happiness. The reality is we set expectations because we believe that if they’re met, we’ll be happy and content. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Expectations are a part of our everyday lives - but is it always a good thing? Here’s some examples when I’ve placed certain expectations on myself: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - The ATAR score I should get in Year 12 - What date nights should look/be like - When I should have kids ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...should I go on? You get the idea. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On a more positive note, expectations help to motivate and keep us on track when working towards a goal 🥅 But they can also hinder our experiences, because if we don’t meet the expectations we placed on ourselves or others, then what? How will we feel? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For the last 3 weeks I’ve been floating (in a pod at @beyondresthawthorn). It’s been such an enriching and incredibly rejuvenating experience on many levels. Every time I entered the pod room, the sign on the door 🚪 read “Expect nothing.“ ...Let’s face it, you don’t really see this too often hey?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our mission, if we choose to accept it is to recognise things in our lives today that can already make us smile - big or small it doesn’t matter, because when we do this, we invite even more good stuff in. Just like me chillin’ out whilst floating in a salt tank - allow yourself to unwind and go with the flow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gianna 💗 @giannalucas_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 My #postfloatglow ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #journeyfloats #beyondresthawthorn #gratitudewithgianna #letsgetgrateful #dreambigandboldly #mindfulness #realtalk #mindset #youthcoach #chronicfatigue #confidencecoach #selflove #melbourne #teencoach #lifecoachforwomen #selfcare #mentalhealthawareness

ABC Radio’s Virginia Trioli (L) launching Doug Hall’s new book “Present Tense: Anna Schwartz Gallery and Thirty-Five Years of Australian Contemporary Art” in Melbourne tonight with Anna Schwartz (R). Having worked with Doug for five years in Brisbane when he was director of Queensland Art Gallery I’m pretty sure this is going to be a very interesting story. #doughall #australiancontemporaryart #australianart @annaschwartzgallery @anna_schhh #virginiatrioli @blackincbooks #presenttense #melbourne

Earfquake by Tyler, The Creator has been stuck in my head all day. I don’t know how this is relevant to you but thanks for reading. Here’s a banger by the multitalented @robbie.polack, a musician, an author and a decent human. He even donated to my terrible attempt at movember so it’s like you gotta check him out now.. • • #indiependentmag #lucecurated #nowherediary #classicsmagazine #abandonedgallery #dreamermagazine #magnumphotos #portraitgasm #portraitpage #portraitaus #agameofportraits #portraitslayers #weshoothumans #streetwear #gramkilla #melbourne #melbournephotography #moodyports #observationmag #portraitgasm #aucreativenetwork #melbournecreative #melbournecreatives
