Pandas! I don’t know about you but, I don’t expect much out of life. Whether it be in friends, love, family, work, myself or whatever else, I have learned to come to terms with the fact that I expect lesser than what I deserve. And for the life of me, I don’t know why that is!
I suppose it stems from being let down in our lives. Therefore in lieu of these disappointments we learn to expect that this is our limit. That this level right here is where we will stay in the receiving department. Maybe it’s because we don’t know any better. Maybe we assume that we are not good enough to experience the abundance of what love and life can offer. Of what another human being can offer. Why? Maybe, we have forgotten our self-worth.
I have forgotten to stay open to the possibility that not everyone out there will harm me. That not everyone will try and gain from my misery and not everyone is looking out for themselves. I have to remember that there are individuals who can look deep into your soul and see the universe. Where the possibilities are endless and the love is the purest. I need to remind myself that not all is lost, and that humanity still has a chance.
It’s a hard feat to re-wire your brain after 15, 20, 40 years of thinking a certain way. However, it can be done. And slowly, albeit with a little nudge, we can start believing that we too can have more.
So my dear, sweet little pandas, please remember that even if you have lost your way, or think that your universe isn’t out there, just have a little faith and assuredness that you are most definitely worth it. Don’t expect less. Instead expect that you are equal to the queens of yesteryear. That you too deserve only the highest quality of riches (and I don’t mean materialistic ones… Metaphor!) that befits the gods. Because one day, someone will offer you an entire galaxy, therefore it’s best not to be surprised at that fact. You’re expecting big things, remember! Because you deserve it!
