Keeping expectations in check

“A light dawned when I realized my expectations were often out of proportion. I thought about the Golden Rule, which I had claimed to live by. It occurred to me that I was expecting others to do things for me that I hadn’t been willing or able to do for them. I had been expecting more from life than I was giving.” ~Cassandra Augure

My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association.
