Ep 45: Managing Expectations

Learn how to narrow the gap between expectations and reality to live a more fulfilling life. In this heartfelt solo episode, wellbeing speaker and educator Meg Durham breaks down how the expectations we have of ourselves and others impact the way we feel, function and relate to others. This episode will give you powerful insight on how you can manage your expectations to experience more joy and satisfaction in your life.

You can quote us on that…

“It is a skill to be able to actively accept our reality as it.”

Meg Durham

“Perspective is a function of experience; the more experiences we have, the more perspective we have.”

Meg Durham

“When we give ourselves permission to be human, we give other people permission to be human too.”

Meg Durham
