DEAR : EXPECTATION
Expectation. What an utter bitch. We all follow through life with this one heavily on our shoulders.
This weeks video is a DEAR : and a Chyna DOES video – this is my second spoken word i’ve released. I don’t like calling it a ‘spoken word’ but for SEO and metadata sake it shall remain this name but just know…it really is just what bubbles around in my head. DEAR : Beauty went down really well and i’m really glad you like what goes through my mind!
Expectation is something we all have to deal with, whether it comes from our parents, friends, strangers or even the media its placed on our back to weigh us down, unintentionally. People give expectations because they believe it will light a fire in you, forgetting although fire provides warmth, light and urgency to move forward, if not tammed and set in the right settings it can burn down a perfectly fine home…
Defiantly just an analogy, don’t start playing with fire kids.
This is what this video is all about. This generation live heavily on expectations we conjure up in our own minds based on other peoples success or day to day lives we follow through social media.
Whether your setting your own expectations or listening to others, remember its a never ending circle. When one expectation is met another will appear which leads to forever chasing happiness.
Do I Do It?
I can’t sit here and lie and say I don’t fall into the expectation trap. I often find myself thinking people around me expect me to be the same level of productivity as them. That I should look a certain way, eat a certain way and even act a certain way. I’m slowly starting to realise though that will only just mold me into a copy of someone else.
There isn’t another Chyna around – so why alter an original? There isn’t another YOU around either, so be yourself, take peoples expectations lightly and move forward with your goals and dreams with confidence that whatever the outcome you’ll grow and learn from it and somehow find your way to your next goal post.
Help remind people this; share this video with who you know or think needs to hear this.
