    Media, Expectations and Motherhood.

    in Women

    The expectations that we have on oursleves as mothers is large, we can all agree on that - but is it real?  The media feeds us with images of how we should look, feel and live from a very young age.  The images of motherhood are often unrealistic while the reality of motherhood is vastly under-represented.   These expectations are reinforced every which way we turn,  causing women to try to hide their reality and persisit on 'keeping it together'.  As you transition into Parenthood, you transition into a stage of life that challanges and changes your identity, your values and your relationships.  Not expecting these changes can greatly affect your life, often leaving women feeling they have underachieved, confused and even depressed - but it's in this vulnerability that we can truly connect - and create our new tribe.

    Elly Taylor is a Physcologist who noticed that her story and many of her clients stories were not dissimilar, they were drowning in parenthood, feeling that something was wrong with themselves, their partner and their relationship. After studying the research available she discovered that there was a lot of research on the subject but it wasn’t translating into practical support in the community, so she wrote her book Becoming Us which has become a bench mark book on the subject. www.empoweringmotherhoodradio.com

    RELATIONSHIPS - expectations are own and society's

    in Spirituality

    This is a topic that we all have thought about over and over again.  Our program last week covered many issues related to relationships and we want to continue the dialogue.

    Is it good to have expectations or can they lead to disappointment and/or resentment?  What does society teach about relationships?  Is it time to change our perspective about relationships?

    We will address these topics and most likely many more.  We hope to again have special guest Summer Bacon on the program.

    The Uncertainty Factor & Limiting Expectations Course

    in Motivation

    There will always be uncertainty in life, and especially when you start breaking out of the mould of who you are now to become who you should be. Things like fear, failure, rejection, and disappointment are all going to come knocking at your door. So what should you do? Throw in the towel now, before you have even gotten started?

    No! There is only one way to overcome uncertainty, and that is have your mind, heart, and soul laser-focused on becoming what your creator put you here to do. When you do that, no force on Earth can stop you! 

    If I asked you right now if you are ready to go out and start living the way you should be, what would you say? I suspect that, at this point in the book, you might say yes. Yes, you are probably getting more and more hopeful about your future and excited that you can actually overcome your current circumstances. And that is fantastic!

    But what if I asked you if you if you were ready to proclaim your expectations of yourself to the entire world? Would you say yes to that? Most people will probably be a little, or even a lot, more hesitant about doing that. And that is completely understandable. 

    It can be hard to proclaim that you have high expectations for yourself, because people are going to hold you to them. Am I right?

    So I am going to make it easy on you. Instead of asking you to tell the world what you expect of yourself, I want you to just tell yourself. Using the seven statements below as guide, create your own high expectations for yourself, and them read them daily.

    John Carver Show - Marital Expectations (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    Andy Stanley has a way of sharing insights on so many subjects.  This talk on marriage is no different.  In this talk he shares:

    New husbands and wives and dreams and goals for their marriage, what roles they will fill, they desire a great marriage even what the wife wears to bed.

    There are financial goals...all these desires have "I" in common.  Every bride and groom walk down the aisle with a box of desires.

    Once the marriage happens, and without really knowing what's happening, married people take all their history and expectations on their new spouse.  Good desires become expectations.  That kind of pressure can be dangerous to a marriage.  They dynamic, instantly, changes because there are two big "I's" in the marriage.

    Selfishness, in a marriage, can destory expectations and can erode trust.

    In some marriage the "dominant" spouse thinks they're in control.

    It's very easy, for me, to be me.  It is very easy for you to be you.

    Conforming to someone else's expectations is very stressful.  We are individuals.

    Some marriages are based on compromise.  It goes good for a while then it starts to implode.

    Your focus of your attention has to be about each other.  

    When you settle in to compromise the marriage is an "I" marriage.

    Discontent can destroy what brought you and your spouse together.

    A desire migrated into an expectation where you say "You owe me" then romance suffers greatly.
