  • Pause For Thought

    With Rev Ruth Scott, an Anglican vicar in Richmond.


    Last Thursday a man planned to stick a knife into my husband, Chris. Sadly, that didn’t happen. Now before you think I’ve lost my marbles completely let me tell you that the man concerned is a wonderful surgeon who had to cancel Chris’ operation at the last minute due to an unexpected medical emergency. What took me by surprise when this happened is just how floored I was by the change of plan. This more extreme situation got me thinking about unfulfilled expectations in general. The more energy we invest in people behaving, or events unfolding in a particular way, the more the feelings of exhaustion, disappointment, anger, or distress when our expectations, even realistic ones, aren’t realised. And sometimes even more energy gets wasted ruminating on what hasn’t gone right for us. I think there’s a real art to living with the uncertainties of life and the fact that we can’t always control what happens in it. It’s one thing to prepare for a specific situation, and quite another to be unprepared for different outcomes. And to hang on to painful emotions provoked by unfulfilled expectations is to keep what’s past in the present in a needlessly debilitating way. If we’re not careful we can become dominated by our expectations rather than learning to delight in, or work creatively with whatever reality comes along. I think the timeless advice to live in the present moment is not about being unprepared for the future, but about not allowing our expectations to set in stone our response to it before it’s even happened. That way we’ll be able to react with greater flexibility to whatever arises and be less troubled by the kind of disturbing feelings that come along when our plans go pear-shaped.
