Clarifying expectations sometimes takes a great deal of courage.

It seems easier to act as though differences don’t exist and to hope things will work out

than it is

to face the differences and work together to arrive at a mutually agreeable set of expectations.

from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People


Just do it. Be the woman you want to be. Create the life you desire.

Acting as though and hoping do not work.

And, in the words of Auntie Vanessa,

Stupid won’t save you.
