The satisfaction of housework completed plus sun streaming in window makes a good start to the weekend. (That’s how low my bar is set 😏) #home #relax #sun #sunshine #autumn #weekend #friday #lowexpectations
I was against the idea of a #childsplayremake . Now, theyve completely changed it. A hacked doll that has no limits on learning or violence? #illpass #lowexpectations #terrible #horror #horrormovies #horrorfilms #horrorfan #horrorfanatic #horrorobsessed #scarymovies #horrorlife #horrorfamily #instahorror #horrorpage
Keeping expectations low may be the key to happiness, scientists have found. Researchers at University College London created a formula to predict happiness levels. They discovered that feeling happy depends not on how well things are going overall, but whether they are going better than might be expected. The team invited 26 people to play a gambling game where they could choose to stick with receiving 40p each game or gamble and possibly win 90p, but maybe win nothing. They found that accumulating wealth did not make people happier, but the expectation of acquiring more money, did make happiness levels shoot up, particularly if people were not expecting to win big. "It is often said that you will be happier if your expectations are lower," said lead author, Dr Robb Rutledge. "We find that there is some truth to this: lower expectations make it more likely that an outcome will exceed those expectations and have a positive impact on happiness." But the team also found that positive expectations can influence happiness before the outcome. "If you have plans to meet a friend at your favourite restaurant, those positive expectations may increase your happiness as soon as you make the plan," said Dr Rutledge. But the team found that visiting a favourite restaurant could actually make people unhappy because their expectations are so high that it would not take much for them to be disappointed. #lowexpectations #lowexpectationsmakesyouhappy #howlowcanyougo #businessinsider #keytohappiness

Golf is a game I really enjoy, mostly because with small 3 kids I only play once a year right now at an annual fundraising event and don’t take it too competitively or seriously...i.e. today’s score card from a scramble I played with a friend. We started out the day tracking how many balls we lost rather than strokes. One of my better days as you can see, only lost one ball! Maybe someday I’ll play more often and take it a little more seriously, but I hope that doesn’t ruin the fun and laughs I always have on the course. . . . #lostgolfballs #golfingfun #golfscorecard #golf #lowexpectations

“dude I’m special. I’m eating this because someone in Indianapolis can’t have this right now.” According to @alvincailan on @bingingwithbabish that’s why In-N-Out tastes good. I have a location nearby and very rarely do they get my money, but after this realization I can taste the difference 😉👍🏼 But @whataburger is even MORE exclusive. Texans are blessed 🙌🏼 #🍔#🐄 #inandoutburger #lowexpectations #sotrendy #austinfood
After contending with a dull knife (knives are important), a stovetop that’s very sensitive to heat, a (non) nonstick pan and my complete lack of intuition I present the final product! And it really wasn’t half bad, but of course my grandmother would like to remind me that “mañana será mejor” (tomorrow it will be better) which is a general life lesson I believe. Please excuse the lack of professional photography and nontraditional accompanying rosé. Pilot episodes are rarely perfect. Unless you’re The Wire. #maidenvoyage #firstattempt #notbad #lowexpectations #cooking #spain #wheresthesangria #tapas #aycarmela #nomija #makingithappen #thewire
Happiness tip of the day: low expectations Life with kids is a constant rollercoaster of emotions. Something as small as a trip to the grocery store can turn into a disaster. Keep the bar low. Things will be a shitstorm often - that’s just the reality of life with small people in tow. 🤷‍♀️ Don’t sweat it. Find the humor. Move on as quickly as possible. #happymom #happyfitmom #momlife #funnymommy #funnymom #happinesstip #happinessmom #happymommy #happymomma #sahmlife #sahm #momlifebelike #happiness #lowexpectations #reallifeparenting #reallifemom #reallife

That I caught a frisbee ain’t no thang.

Oh god, one of the hamsters escaped and our daughter is so sad. She left a little trail of food out last night in the hope it would return. I can’t cope with the heartache. The other hamster is lording it around her massive run now that she owns the joint. Nature is harsh. Parenting is horrible. We’ve run out of tea. Tuesday, you massive twat. . . . #hamsterescapeartist #hamster #parentingishard #sendtea #lowexpectations #holycrap #rosiejohnsonillustrates #resilience #developedworldproblems

My phone rewarding me for going to bed. I knew I could do it! Haha #lowexpectations
Breakfast is my jam. It is the only meal I feel comfortable cooking. #lowexpectations
The more I have done this the smaller my circle has gotten and the closer I’ve come to achieving goals. Sometimes the hardest disappointment is the acceptance that what you want isn’t the right fit. #selfcare #highstandards #lowexpectations

Things I am slowly learning: pick your battles; everything passes; be kinder than you feel; you get more of what you value; you can arrange a smiley face of peas on it, but it’ll still be a big slice of beetroot. Up for hearing your parenting wisdom.

Today was great. I played fetch until I couldn't (it happens 🤣.) I drank gallons of water. I hung out at a dog friendly Cafe. And if that wasn't enough, I got treats and a lot of attention from all the other peeps slacking on this beautiful day. . . . #slackers #redletterday #lowexpectations #perfectday #sfdogs

With low expectations people can only surprise you in the best kind of way. ❤️😘💪✨
You know those days you’re killing it as a mom? Like could run a marathon with a baby on your boob? Or wash, dry, fold, AND put all of the clothes away before dinner? Yeah, me neither, but I washed my hair today and Finn brushed his teeth for 37 minutes, so there that. 😉 #lowexpectations 👉🏼 ps. swipe to see Finn at the fruit farm acting an awful lot like he does when I try to go the bathroom by myself 🤨 #momletmein . . . #momlife #mommybloggers #momitforward #momtog #momtogs #instamom #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #candedchildhold #dailyparenting #mytinymoments #photooftheday #lovelysquares #thehappynow #holdthemoments #chooselovely #flashesofdelight #momswithcameras #our_everyday_moments #bestofmom #motherhoodisdarling

Back to school realness!! I couldn’t get a pic of diva because she was all like ciao mom and walked in without so much as a second glance 😱. Myer on the other hand was a stage five clinger!! For the record: Aj wants to be a flower girl and Myer wants to be a “daddy monkey” when they grow up. We don’t have high expectations #backtoschool , #twokidsinschoolisbetterthanone , #mommaisfree , #stagefiveclinger , #scholasticallyspeaking , #lowexpectations

Potatoes, y'all! 🥔 Earlier in the year, some potatoes started sprouting, so I put them in a box in the basement. After a couple of months, the sprouts were about a foot high! 🥔 I built a potato box on May 6 out of pallet wood. 🛠️ Added some soil and compost randomly over the next few months. 🌱 Fast forward to September 6, when I disassembled the box to find..... potatoes! The original idea was to push it over, but it were right 'eavy. (Yorkshire accent inserted here) 👩‍🌾👨‍🌾 We had a yield of almost 5 pounds from those 4 sprouted potatoes. There were still some wee ones growing, so I guess I could have waited longer. I just assumed they'd all have rotted by now anyway. #lowexpectations 🥔🥔🥔 Tonight, roasties! #tejasfarms #growyourown #gardeningexperiences #palletwooddiy #diyprojects #potatobox #yougetapotatoandYOUgetapotatoandYOUgetapotato #makesomethingoutofnothing #wastenotwantnot #potatoplants #setitandforgetit #littlevictories
Now don't hate... 🙂 . . I technically didn't DNF Great Expectations. It's still on my TBR. But. I really don't think I'll enjoy it. I'm not exactly sure why; I haven't read Dickens before so I can't say I'm not a fan. But I have a strong, gut feeling that it just won't be for me. 🙃 . . Have you read this? Am I wrong to be so hesitant about it? 🤷‍♀️ . . #inbookstagramwetrust DNF 😑 . . Today's prompt is BG Tips, so let's share our advice for successfully engaging with the bookstagram community.
