When our expectations are met and things go according to plan, we feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. Risking little, we feel safe, in control, and on-track. But when life throws us a curveball or does not live up to our expectations, we end up with an Expectation Hangover. This particular brand of discomfort is profoundly sobering and uncomfortable.
Christine Hassler urges us to not wallow in regret, self-recrimination, or anger, and instead see these hangovers as catalyst for profound transformation. Often life has to throw us a curveball (or several) so that we look in a different direction. When we fully treat our Expectation Hangover on the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual level, we learn courage, faith, surrender, and love, and we make room for the kind of unexpected things that lead us more directly to a life we love - rather than a life we planned.

There a lot of good tools in the books. I'm going to get a hard copy as well. The only thing I did not like is the name of the book expectation hangover.
I hope I never hear someone say "expectation hangover" ever again. I barely got through 20 min before I wanted to drive off a cliff.
"Great book, very nicely narrated"
I listened through the book now I'm ready to tackle the exercises...can't wait to get started!
"Great butt kicker"
I would compare it to Mastering Your Mean Girl, they both have similar writing formats.
One of the best wisdom lesson books ever. A real healer. Soulful and practical guidance with infinite applications.
"We've all had them. Now learn how to get through"
Perfect book for anyone going through a rough time in their life, or experiencing serious disappointments. Hassler helps you to realize that you can get through it, you are not alone, and that a change in perspective of a situation can make all the difference. Highly recommended!
I loved this book for offering a fresh perspective on what to do when life doesn't go as planned. I think we all need strategies to help us process and accept disappointment and put it I context so as not to burden ourselves with it in the future. This book covers our expectations of ourselves, of others, other people of us and of life in general. Well read too, so an excellent job by both Christines! Being an audio book a pdf with the questions in each chapter and key points is needed for the readers. I highly recommended this book for everyone.
